Someone told me today he read that if you extend flaps in a turn, an asymmetrical flap extenstion could result. I've never ever heard this before, and aerodynamically, it doesn't really make any sense (to me anyways). Sure, there's some difference in airflow over the outside wing (further distance to travel in same amount of time as inside wing) as opposed to the inside wing, but thats pretty slight. I highly doubt the flaps are far enough apart (on a light airplane anyways) to have much different amounts of airflow. Surely it can't be enough to cause assymetrical flap extension, can it? Anyone else ever heard this before? My best guess would be he was reading something about larger, faster aircraft. I suppose it would be a little more of a factor in those because of the increased distance between the flaps. Anyone?
