Micro vortex generators are small metal blades placed in a spanwise line aft of the leading edge of the wing. They control airflow over the upper surface of the wing by creating vortices that energize the boundary layer. This results in improved performance and control authority at low airspeeds and high angles of attack.
Micro Vortex Generators are manufactured under FAA PMA from aircraft grade aluminum and are alodined to a mil-spec, ready to accept paint before installation. Included in each kit are installation tools, computer cut templates, detailed illustrated drawings and instructions, and Loctite Depend ™Adhesive for installing the vortex generators on your airplane.
A Micro Vortex Generator
Creates a tiny vortex in the airstream over an airfoil. This vortex energizes the normally stagnant boundary layer of air on the wing's surface. An energized boundary layer is more resistant to flow separation than a stagnant boundary layer. The result is that airflow "sticks" to the wing better, permitting flight at lower airspeeds with improved control authority.
