Micro AeroDynamics’ vortex generator kits have received FAA STC approval for installation on the Aviat Husky models A-1, A-1A, A-1B, as well as the newer A-1C-180 and A-1C-200. The kits, which can be installed in one day, offer reduced stall speed, improved aileron response and a shorter takeoff and landing roll.
Each kit consists of 88 aluminum vortex generators that are mounted just aft of the leading edge of the wing and an additional 40 VGs that are attached to the underside of the horizontal stabilizer. Also included in the kits are drawings and instructions, installation tools and templates, spares and Loctite Depend adhesive.
Vortex generators keep the boundary layer attached to the flying surfaces, providing better control, even at stall speeds, according to company officials. They improve slow flight characteristics and have no impact on cruise speed settings.
The price for a complete kit is $695, plus shipping and handling. The VGs can be painted to match an aircraft’s base color for an additional $150 per color.
