Micro AeroDynamics has crossed the 500 mark in the number of aircraft models eligible for installation. Since the company was founded in 1989, Micro AeroDynamics has shipped more than 5,000 VG kits to aircraft owners all over the world.
In all cases, the stall speed is lowered and slow speed handling of the aircraft is improved. That is because the vortex generators create mini tornados or wind swirls over the surfaces they are glued to, keeping the boundary layer attached at slower speeds and higher angles of attack. Though the small metal blades have no effect on high speed or cruise settings, they can provide dramatic, positive changes in maneuvering at slow or approach speeds. With twins, they significantly affect performance with the loss of an engine, substantially reducing any tendency to roll into the dead engine,
Vortex generators, typically attached to the upper leading edge surface of the wing and at varied locations on the tail group, reduce landing speed, cut down on takeoff roll and assure positive aileron and rudder control up to and sometimes into a full stall. They do not collect ice.
