It has been known for some time, that vortex generators can
reduce stall speeds and improve an aircraft's handling performance.
Vortex generators allow the wing to develop more lift and
lower airspeeds. This reduces takeoff speed and improves the
rate of climb. Vortex Generators can also help retain positive
aileron control and enhance your rudder authority in higher
angles of attack. You will immediately notice an improvement
in your aircraft.

HOW DO THEY WORK?
As air flows normally over a wing of an aircraft in flight,
the air "sticks" to the surface of the wing. This
adherence to the wing's surface produces lift. If the airflow
loses its adherence and separates from the wing, aircraft
performance can suffer in the form of increased drag, loss
of lift and higher fuel consumption.
Researchers at NASA Langley Research Centre developed Micro
VGs to control this flow detachment by producing miniature,
controlled tornadoes, called "vortices". The Micro
VGs sweep away uncontrolled airflow separation over the wings
and flaps with the benefit of reduced drag and increased lift
(ie, less engine power required to produce the same lift).
Micro VG technology contributes to performance and safety
improvements as well as noise reduction for the aerospace
industry. It's relatively simple design and ease of installation
make Micro-Vortex Generators one of the most cost-effective
means of enhancing aircraft safety and performance.
The instructions show where to install your AirWave VG's.
It is recommended to temporarily apply them with double stick
tape, carry out flight tests and adjust VG location - if required.
Then bond them permanent with either Loctite® "Prism"
401 cyanoacrylate adhesive or Pacer® Technologies (Super
Glue) "Plasti-Fuse" #15104 (with primer/activator)
or Permatex® "Auto Trim Adhesive" #80885 (with
Note: These Airwave Vortex Generators are not rated for certified
They are designed and intended for experimental aircraft
and ultralights. Experimental aircraft that already have a
type certificate should contact a CAR 35 engineer or the Sport
Aircraft Association of Australia to see if installation of
VG's constitutes a major alteration that may require a flight
Customer comment: Jodel D11
Just been out test flying. Made a big difference.. I've
only put the VGs on the wings. Speed up 3-4 knots and 3-4
slower. Doesn't drop now on flare "slow landing"
and ailerons' are mush faster I can shake the wings now. It
simply gets airborne faster too, which it wouldn't do before
