A clean start backflush system provides a mode of operation in a suction laminar flow control LFC vehicle in which low speed propulsion and backflush through surface apertures are simultaneously generated. The propulsion assists the transition from an at-rest state to the desired high-speed travel, while backflush in the low-speed regime ensures that ocean particles are not captured at the entrance to the flush suction slots.
