Turbulence Cancelling is able to reduce turbulence loads felt by passengers by more than 80% making use of counteracting control surface deflections.
Direct Lift Control is achieved by dynamically adjusting the wing shape instead of rotating the whole aircraft - like birds do.
Turbulence Load Prediction
Turbulence Load Prediction enables to proactively anticipate turbulence impacts rather than only react after their occurrence.
