The Use of Active Flow Control to Increase the Acceleration of Airplanes on Takeoff and Reduce the Dependence on Rotation
The technology is the utilization of active flow control (AFC) technology in the leading edge to improve the process of airplane takeoff. It will allow for airplanes to perform a take off without rotating. The AFC technology would allow for the airplane to take off with minimal rotation. The small rotation allows the ability to use smaller landing gear...
