Abstract : The patent relates to a device whereby a turbojet combustor is provided with scoop ducts mounted on a rotary shutter to control injection of additional air to the burner dome. At low altitude, when smoke is objectionable, the pilot causes rotation of the shutter. The scoop ducts are tilted to produce a swirling air pattern directed at the fuel spray.
