Fowler flap and complex slotted flap

A Fowler flap (figure (a)) is hinged so that it can move back and increase the airplane's wing area. It may also be rotated down to increase the camber. The complex slotted flap shown in figure (b) uses a leading-edge slat and a triple-slotted trailing-edge flap.
