Abstract : The patent relates to a thrust diverter valve assembly for a bypass engine including flap elements pivotally mounted for alternate adjustments between a first position diverting bypass flow to a straight-through passage. A second position diverts the bypass flow to a vertical-takeoff-and-landing mode of operation. Hinged sections provide sealing between adjacent flap elements, and serve as flow-straightening vanes when the flap elements have been adjusted to their vertical flight mode.
