R.T. Youngman Full Span Flaps

Robert Talbot Youngman invented and patented full span flaps for small low wing airplane year 1946. Later these flaps were used in a test plane called Youngman-Baynes HL.1.

The innovative high-lift wing designed by R T Youngman was wedded to a re-designed Proctor Mk IV fuselage to evaluate fullspan slotted flaps. As VT789 the type was designated P.46 and flew on 5 February 1948 conferring excellent low speed lift. It was evaluated By RAE and later sold to the designer as G-AMBL.
