Conservation Through Innovation
Long before sustainability was a buzzword in aviation, Aviation Partners has been providing green solutions to the industry. Every flight using Blended Winglet and Split Scimitar Winglet technology works to benefit the environment in two ways: by burning less fuel and reducing C02 emissions compared to aircraft without the Winglets.
Aviation Partners’ designed Winglets are now flying on more than 10,000 business and commercial aircraft, saving billions of gallons of jet fuel and reducing global C02 emissions by millions of tons. While Winglets work in conjunction with other green innovations, such as Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), Aviation Partners’ cutting-edge designs have been cutting drag and improving fuel efficiency by as much as 7 percent by themselves since the 1990s.
To put those numbers in perspective, when we reached the 10-billion-gallon mark of jet fuel saved in 2019, that savings would have operated Alaska Airlines’ entire fleet of aircraft for nearly 14 years. The National Business Aviation Association has said sustainability is a commitment that will be met through technological progress. Aviation Partners’ Winglets are a major part of the technological component to meet proposed near-term greenhouse gas emission standards.
