What is canard?

  • 1 Answer(s)

    A canard is a small wing that is placed forward of the main wing of a fixed-wing aircraft. A canard is used for longitudinal stability and control. Canard can be of fixed type, movable, or of variable geometry surface. A canard is used for the production of lift, pitch control, longitudinal stability, or trim. It modifies the airflow over the main wing. Canard influences aircraft’s longitudinal equilibrium, and static and dynamic stability characteristics.
