The vortilons are mounted just before we sign the airplane off for flight, since they’re so easy to break off. However it’s critical that they be installed as the prevent the sweep of the wing from allowing the high pressure air to move laterally down the wing which would hurt lift and make the wings really wallow at low speed.
