Flight Control System
A radical solution for aviation problems is here. Emerging beneficial technologies called flow-thrust technologies can be better avionics that aren"??t understood today. Configurations making less drag need research and development before starting production. The aviation industry can be transformed by the technologies. Assembly of the planes can be sped up significantly. The units are simply attached and connected to the wiring. The directional thrust units are important engineering discoveries that can replace wings and advance aerodynamics. Thrust units do not need de-icing because they have Teflon coated surfaces. Maintenance and repair are limited because they are made to be durable. The edges of the flat sheets are the only contact with the slipstreaming air that moves through the hollow configurations. Skin drag is the only drag the units have unless they operate to deflect or accelerate the air.
