Gallons of Fuel Saved
Our Blended Winglet geometry, which reduces wingtip vortices, is designed to achieve near ideal flow characteristics, particularly in the interface between wing and winglet.
The Split Scimitar Winglet redefines the aerodynamics of the existing Blended Winglet and is now standard on all new Boeing 737NG based BBJ aircraft.
Spiroid Winglets, which look like loops at the end of the wing, have been shown in flight tests to reduce drag by over 11% and may be the shape of things to come.
"Blended Winglets are the single most significant aerodynamic improvement ever developed for commercial or business aviation."Clay Lacy, Aviation Founder & CEO
"At M.80 [and FL450] the fuel flow was 1,700 lbs/hr, which would compare with almost 2,000 lbs/hr down at 410 without the winglets. Clearly, the combination of improved wing performance and improved fuel specifics at the higher altitude is a great combination for range."Randy Greene, Chairman/Pilot, Safe Flight Instrument Corp., Falcon 900B
"We are thrilled with the installation of our winglets. The performance we are achieving is well beyond my expectations."Brian Katz, Aviation Mgr/Chief Pilot, The Dawson Companies, Hawker 800XP
