Title: ASSEMBLY FOR AIRCRAFT COMPRISING A MOVABLE TRAILING EDGE FLAP
Abstract:
The invention relates to an assembly (20) for an aircraft comprising a fuselage portion (5a) of the aircraft and an adjacent movable trailing edge flap (16), the flap comprising an inner end secured to an actuation shaft (22) for the flap passing through an opening (24) that is provided through the fuselage portion (5a) and is equipped with a seal system (30) comprising a first seal portion (30a) and a second seal portion (30b) arranged opposite one another as seen in a direction of the width (D2) of the opening. According to the invention, at least one of the first and second seal portions (30a, 30b) is segmented in the longitudinal direction into multiple seal sections (34a, 34b), each seal section being associated with elastic return means (36a, 36b) that force the section to move relative to the opening (24) in the direction of the width (D1), toward the other seal portion.
