Air flow can be control by atmospheric plasma

Such effect permits reduced drag (with the associated decrease in consumption) and increase in the lift capacity.

EFFITECH pulser can produce atmospheric plasma with a generator positioned far away of the plasma electrode, without inducing perturbation thanks to a coaxial connexion between the pulser and the electrodes
