Jet Aviation installs split scimitar winglets
SSW technology builds on the existing blended winglet design to increase range by more than 2%. The SSW design adds a new scimitar-tipped large ventral strake, reinforcing the internal wing and winglet structure, and replacing the winglet tips with new aerodynamically shaped scimitar tips.
“One of our top priorities at Jet Aviation is to promote our employees’ understanding of and training in advanced aviation technology,” says Jet Aviation Basel Operations Senior VP & General Manager Neil Boyle. “We have been working closely with personnel from Aviation Partners to gain experience and proficiency with the SSW retrofit [and] look forward to supporting more Boeing aircraft owners and operators with SSW retrofits in the future — whether in conjunction with routine maintenance, an interior refurbishment, a green completion or as a standalone installation.”
