Wow, good article and an interesting proposition.
I'm not sure I understand how blowing air "through the trailing edge of the wing" allows for manoeuvring the aircraft. Is that system responsive enough to improve the aircrafts agility in order to take advantage of the possible weight decrease?
Sorry if this is a stupid question. I am enthusiastic when it comes to aircraft but have almost zero actual knowledge on the subject..
