The Logical Approach to Aerodynamic Stability
No Yaw Dampers Required
Avcon Fins dramatically improve directional stability when
installed on Lear 35 & 36 models, and eliminate
the FAA requirement for operable yaw dampers. This results
in increased dispatch reliability and makes a bold statement
about the effectiveness of the fins. Avcon
Fins work, and work extremely well!
Improved Handling & Performance
The first thing that flight crews notice when flying an Avcon
Fin equipped Learjet is the smoothness and positive control
response, even at low airspeeds. The aircraft simply
flys better. Like the feathers of an arrow, Avcon Fins
interact with the vertical stabilizer to create positive stability
in all three axes. The Avcon Fins also channel and smooth
the airflow around the tailcone area, which results in obvious
drag reduction benefits.
At cruise airspeeds, Avcon Fins are aligned to provide aerodynamic
input when the aircraft attempts to stray from the intended
line of flight, such as during turbulence. This "self-correcting"
feature controls yaw and helps keep the aircraft on the
step for optimal range performance.
During landing and other low-speed maneuvers, Avcon Fins
eliminate divergent dutch roll tendencies by providing additional
lift and directional stability. The result is a very
solid and predictable handling characteristics.
With Avcon Fins an aircraft that flys better and looks great.
Avcon Fins with a Lear 35 or 36 are a winning combination.
As an added benefit, the installation of Avcon Fins
allows Learjet owners to purchase one or more of the optional
weight increases described below:

|Zero Wing & Tip Fuel Weight:
The weight increases are FAA approved, and may increase the
useful load of Avcon Fin equipped Learjets by 1,200 pounds
or more. That is over half a ton of additional revenue
potential on every trip, offered to you exclusively by Avcon
and its Installation Centers.
Call today to order your set of Avcon Fins, and begin enjoying
stability and handling characteristics of a Model 31 and state-of-the-art
looks, without giving up the range or payload of your current
Lear 20 Series Fins: Avcon is certifying a Fin solution
for the Lear 20 Series airplanes and expects to have a solution
available for sale be mid 2006.
