This work is strongly related to that in Patent FR-1909-394718, Patent GB-1911-25695 and Patent FR-1912-438486, all pertaining to the particulars of paired lift surfaces connected in such a way that they respond, independently, in a compensatory manner, so that turbulence encountered by the one brings about the automatic and proper displacement of the other, in the interests of stability.

This patent is not a "certificate of addition". It makes no reference to a specific predecessor.
