Retrofitting large cargo aircraft using Turbo Wing® Technology as shown, will dramatically improve its utility and economy. The retrofit simply requires the removal of the wing flaps and the installation of powered rotors in the wing cutouts where the flaps were located. See Retrofit Concept The retrofit of the wing will dramatically improve the low speed utility of the aircraft, increase its rate of climb and will extend the range of the aircraft without any degadation of its high speed performance.
