What is a flap on an aircraft? - Flaps help your wing adapt to your current phase of flight. Are you taking off or landing? Extending your flaps increases lift, and allows you to fly at slower speeds. Are you cruising at altitude? Retracting flaps reduces lift, and in turn, decreases drag. It is a high lift device.
