The present invention provides an aircraft wing (10) having a main portion (20) with a trailing edge (20b) and a movable flaperon (22) hingedly secured at the trailing edge. A movable flaperon seal (40) is hingedly attached at its leading edge to the trailing edge of the main portion of the wing. Interconnecting structure is provided between the main portion of the wing and the flaperon seal. Such structure is operable to pivot the seal flap such that the opening between the trailing edge of the main wing portion (20b) and the leading edge of said movable flap (22a) on the upper surface is selectively closed by the movable flap at predetermined angular positions of the movable flap.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
