aircraftis similar in concept to a tiltrotordesign. Whereas a tilt rotor rotates the propellerfrom axial to dorsal, a tiltwing rotates the entire wing, not just the nacelles or prop and shaft. They are typically fully capable of VTOLoperations.
An advantageFact|date=October 2007 of tilt wing over tilt rotor is that when the rotors tilt up, the wings rotate so that they do not block the downward air.
Canadair CL-84Dynavert was a successful tiltwing design that never went into production.
