The "Control Wing" aircraft is very different from aircraft designed conventionally. Normally airplanes have a fixed wing with ailerons and a tail with elevators and rudder to move the aircraft on its axis. With the "Control Wing", which features a "free-floating", easy to control design, the wing of the aircraft is pivoted to provide a variable angle of incidence while in flight. Each wing can also be moved in opposing directions, providing a banked attitude for turns. The design is also free of stall or spin characteristics.

During the 1950’s George Spratt designed the aircraft that the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum in reading, Pa now owns, the only known land version, the Spratt 108, built in 1973 by Robert Quaintence of Coatesville, PA. and flown for many hours.
