As part of the NACA transonic research program, a free-flight investigation has been made by the Pilotless Aircraft Research Division to determine some effects of aileron span and deflection on the rolling effectiveness of plain, sealed, 15-percent- and 30-percent-chord flap-type ailerons through the Mach number range of 0.8 to 1.6.
