Despite the big interest in both, micro-air vehicles (MAV) and flow-control strategies, only few studies have investigated the flow-control possibilities over low aspect ratio (LAR) wings flying at low Reynolds numbers (Re). The present study verified the LAR thick airfoils' conformity with the nonlinear lift approximation equation. Then, a moving-wall flow control method was designed and tested over an LAR thick airfoil (0.57 aspect ration (AR), NACA0015 shaped) performing at a chord-based Re of 4 × 10 4 . The moving belt control postponed the stall onset by 25 deg and produced a 103% gain in lift without any saturation signs at a control speed ratio of U b /U = 6. Particle image velocimetry (PIV) measurements confirmed the effectiveness of the moving-wall control strategy on the upper surface flow reattachment. Moreover, other quantities such as the, vortices, and the swirling strength are investigated.
