Edge Aerodynamix receives FAA Supplemental Type Certificate

December 5, 2016

 

Edge Aerodynamix, a company whose products save fuel and energy by improving the aerodynamic efficiency of aircraft wings and rotor blades, announced that its conformal vortex generator (CVG) technology has received a supplemental type certificate (STC) from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The FAA granted the STC authorizing CVG modification to Boeing 737-300 through 737-900ER Series aircraft.

Edge Aerodynamix's CVG technology provides significant fuel and energy savings by reducing aerodynamic drag. The CVG utilizes an elastomeric adhesive-backed film that is applied to the surface of an airplane wing or helicopter rotor blade. The film produces a passive, hybrid, laminar flow control effect resulting from an array of small vortices formed in the laminar sub boundary layer of the surface. This flow structure reduces drag from viscous and shock/boundary layer interaction, thereby reducing the amount of fuel a transonic aircraft consumes.

The Boeing 737 is the most widely used airliner in history. A STC is issued when an applicant has received FAA approval to modify an aeronautical product from its original design.
