FlexSys UPDATE — Long-Sought Seamless Wing Technology Introduced at AIAA SciTech 2014 Show
ANN ARBOR, MICH — January 13, 2014
The long-sought elusive goal of practical, seamless control surface technologies — chased the defense and aviation industries and researchers for several decades — has finally been realized with the introduction of a variable geometry airfoil, called FlexFoil, by FlexSys, Inc., of Ann Arbor, Michigan. The technology was showcased at the AIAA convention in Washington, DC January 13–15.
A Gulfstream business-jet retrofitted with FlexFoil TM - Variable Geometry Control Surface technology is scheduled for NASA/Air Force flight tests in July 2014.
