Flap Gap Seals

Flap Gap Seals

$295.00

Piper flaps have a large gap between the flap and the rear wing spar. This gap allows high pressure air from under the wing to rush upwards into the low pressure area above the wing. This vertical air current has the effect of separating the air from the upper surface of the flap, reducing its lift and increasing the drag!

Laminar Flow Systems flap gap seals eliminate this problem! GAIN UP TO 3MPH. (Some of the latest model Pipers actually include flap gap seals, validating our concept, which has been in production since 1983!) – See details section for more info

  • Aircraft: All PA 28,32
  • Installation Time: Typical Installation In 3 HRS
  • Durable Aluminum Construction
Laminar Flow Systems flap gap seals are made of aircraft aluminum and installation can be done without removing the flaps. It is always preferable to use mods of the same material as the part to which they are attached. This eliminates problems of incompatibility, differential shrinkage or expansion leading to cracks, problems in paint matching, etc. Always attach only aluminum parts to your wing.
