In one embodiment, a wing includes a low pressure side, a high pressure side opposite the low pressure side, and a drag reducing apparatus coupled to the low pressure using an adhesive. The drag reducing apparatus includes a first side coupled to the low pressure side of the wing, and a second side opposite the first side, the second side comprising a plurality of vortex generators arranged in an array configuration, the array configuration of vortex generators operable to weaken a wingtip vortex generated by the wing by generating one or more vane vortices near an end of the low pressure side of the wing.
