Vortex Control Device

Engine Strake - AviatorsBuzz

Vortex Control Device, Fan Cowl Chine, or as I call it an “Engine Strake” is a fin that controls the airflow along a part of the wing. Sometimes you see cool vortexes around this engine strake. The engine strake is located on the inboard fan cowl of each engine. Engine strakes are not interchangeable between the left and right engines.
