Abstract : A lift enhancing device for an inextensible, membraneous wing is disclosed. The device comprises the 'forced' reattachment of a section of the trailing edge back to the trailing edge so that a warp is introduced therein. The section is reattached with flexible tape to allow oscillation of the section, and increased lift from the wing, at prescribed airspeeds.
