Flight Evaluation of the Wing Vortex Wake Generated by Large Jet Transports

  • William H. Andrews


A flight program has been conducted to update the current level of knowledge relative to the behavior of wing wake vortices generated by existing large transport aircraft and future jumbo jet transports. The tests were conducted to evaluate the wake location, persistence, apparent intensity, and influence out of ground effect and primarily under terminal area configuration and operational conditions.
