spoiler


Explanation:
With respect to Heathcliff's and Vaugh's comments, I wouldn't say that "wing" translate "alerón", it translate "ala" (of birds or aircraft); "aileron" translate "alerón", a control surface in airplanes, and "spoiler" may also be translated as "alerón" or "deflector aerodinámico". Car lovers in Venezuela call it "espóiler".
