English term or phrase: canard
Definition from quest.nasa.gov:
a tail configuration (two small horizontal surfaces on either side of the aircraft) mounted toward the front of the aircraft, rather than at the rear.

Example sentence(s):
  • The acute angle between the fuselage and the canard creates interference drag. Air flow moving past the fuselage"tangles" with airflow moving up and over the canard. corvairq.info/Canard
  • Moreover, the spin-rate of the fin system is governed not only by the wind vector and canard deflections, but also by the strength and location of the convected canard vortices, whose induced velocity field differentially loads the tail fins at low angles of attack. people.nas.nasa.gov
  • In addition to its 12-foot-diameter rotor/wing, it has an 8.9-foot-span canard and an 8.1-foot-span horizontal tail. Boeing
