This manuscripts provides open-to-discussion opinions and issues relevant to required and feasible routes to progress in the emerging active flow control technology using flow instability as efficiency enhancement tool. Traditional and modern theoretical approaches as well as numerical issues and recommended approaches to resolving the latter are discussed. Generic flow control process is put forward and illustrated using experimental examples. The authors view the mere fact that a fruitful and open discussion led to the current manuscript, an achievement by itself.
