: Wing twist is an aerodynamic feature added to aircraft wings to adjust lift distribution along the wing. Often, the purpose of lift redistribution is to ensure that load distribution is uniform from wing tip to root, it ensures that the effective angle of attack is always lower at the wing tip than at the root, meaning the root will stall before the tip. This is desirable because the aircraft's flight control surfaces are often located at the wingtip, and the variable stall characteristics of ...
