FOR SAFETY, PERFORMANCE & PROFIT
Better Performance Starts With Better Technology
Like most BLR products, Vortex Generators (VGs) are designed to optimize airflow – in this case over the wing of the aircraft on which they are installed.
VGs enhance performance by energizing airflow and spinning it into tiny vortices that travel over the wing and compress the boundary layer. All VG kits include small, highly engineered aluminum tabs that are attached to the wing aft of the leading edge in precise locations.
> Increases useful load (most models)
> Reduces Vmc below stall speed (most models)
> Increases aileron effectiveness in all flight regimes
> Shorter takeoffs and landings with steeper climbouts and approaches
> Decreased tire and brake wear
> Stall speed reductions of 7-21% (varies by model)
> Approved on Known-Ice aircraft
> No additional maintenance required
> Easy one-day installation
> No weight and balance change required

Vortex Generators + Landing Gear Mods
When Vortex Generators are installed, a BLR landing gear modification will make the increase in gross takeoff weight more usable and improve the flying experience. Because the modification maximizes the VG-enabled performance gains, it is especially well suited for those who fly in remote areas with short runways.

Read what our customers have to say about Vortex Generators
“The BLR Vortex Generators make a completely different aircraft out of the Duke. I can’t imagine why anybody would not pay the price of one of your kits to make such a big improvement in their aircraft.”
– Ron Garner, Garner Transportation, Inc.
“The BLR Vortex Generators have made a dramatic difference in the flight characteristics of the Duke! I feel that I can handle any engine-out emergency on takeoff without a problem.”
– Bill Lovell, Lovell Construction Co.
“Unbelievable performance. Simply unbelievable.”
– Shaker Razook, Owner, Shaker Express
“ I’ve flown my Cessna A185F C-GZDN a couple of times since installing the VGs and it seems to take-off a lot quicker and the roll rate response is better. I’m super impressed with BLR’s VGs and especially their incredible customer service! Thank you BLR! “
– Sean Heard, BC
