technology Concept The FanWing is a distributed-propulsion aircraft with a trapped vortex inside the rotor cage. A cross-flow fan at the leading edge of the wing transfers the work of the engine to the air along the entire wingspan. The resulting acceleration of the large volume of air offers very short-take off, no stall and efficient short-haul heavy lift capability. Efficiency Documented efficiencies for the first prototypes were 20 grams of lift per Watt of shaft power, indicating an initial lift of 1 –1 ½ tons in the air with 100 hp. 2002 wind-tunnel optimisation tests indicated 29 g/W. Most recent predictions (July 2011) are that the FanWing will cover more than twice the distance of a helicopter on the same fuel load.
