WHAT ARE Vortex Generators?

 

Vortex Generators are small metal blades installed on the leading edge of an aircraft's wing. VGs
 create vortices which energize the air as it flows over the wing. As the angle of attack increases,
 this energized air stays attached to the wing longer, allowing the aircraft to fly at a slower speed.

Vortex Generators by Pacific NW Aero 

 
 Our vortex generators are small pieces of 6063-T651 aluminum extrusion machined to our exact
  specifications. Our blade style design, which is the standard used on certified aircraft, has been
proven to provide a better vortice then the delta /shark fin type of VG.

Unlike plastic vortex generators, our aluminum VGs are impervious to ultra-violet light; rain; icy conditions 
     and general wear and tear. They will not break off or become distorted. They adhere to the same
specifications that the FAA requires of vortex generators for certified aircraft.

       
To provide you with optimal performance, we have two different sizes of vortex generators available,
 depending on your particular wing and / or air foil.
