Usage Examples English
  • An investigation concluded that during the last fifteen seconds of flight, the crew was unable to effectively operate the ailerons.

  • It has interconnected ailerons and flaps, with both systems functioning as both ailerons and as flaps when operated.
  • The B-52 Stratofortress also had spoilers augmenting small ailerons, known as "feeler ailerons".

  • Ailerons were not used on manned aircraft until they were employed on Robert Esnault-Pelterie's glider in 1904, although in 1871 a French military engineer, Charles Renard, built and flew an unmanned glider incorporating ailerons on each side (which he termed 'winglets'), activated by a Boulton-style pendulum controlled single-axis autopilot device.
