The European commercial aerospace industry has witnessed an unprecedented growth over the last 15 years through the introduction of new, highly competitive aircraft products. To maintain growth and increase the market share of the European commercial aircraft industry, new aircraft products must be launched over the next decade. Simply developing new aircraft will be insufficient to maintain Europe's current strong position. However, leaps to truly unconventional aircraft configurations and concepts, such as flying wings, are clearly the long-term future. Currently, civil transport aircraft derive their low speed performance from the use of a basic mid 1900's concept, the flap and slat system. Significant research has been directed towards performance improvements of this established and 'ageing' high-lift system. HELIX looks to explore a range of novel High-Lift concepts for low speed aerodynamic performance for conventional transport aircraft configuration.
