Winglet Technology is finalizing its new winglets product for the Cessna Sovereign private jet. The tests took place in the city of Wichita together with the manufacturer of the most private aircraft during which the prototype flew more than 50 hours.
According to the developers, the wingtips will increase the cruising speed by 30 km/h and increase the maximum flight range by 300 kilometers. The installation of winglets will also provide additional lift, which is most important in high-altitude airports and airports with high ambient temperatures.
The cost of these tips will be $ 395,000 without installation and are expected to be certified by the end of 2015. Winglet Technology is currently preparing to conduct product certification tests.
