Micro Vortex Generator(s) can be installed directly on the landing light lens with the provided Loctite® 330™ Depend® Adhesive. If it falls on the landing light lens frame, the Vortex Generator(s) may be moved LATERALLY the shortest distance necessary to clear the obstacle. The foot of the vortex generator may be trimmed, or shimmed as required as long as the blade remains intact.
