Beyond extending our patented Blended Winglet, and Split Scimitar Winglet, designs to new business and commercial aircraft types we are constantly developing new ways to improve the aerodynamic efficiency of aircraft in the future.
API’s patented Spiroid Winglets, which look like a large loop of rigid ribbon material attached to each wing tip, were originally tested on the Gulfstream II in 1993. The concept was further refined using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) technology in preparation for flight testing on a Falcon 50 in 2010. The flight test results proved a drag reduction of over 11%. We are currently studying possible future applications for Spiroid Winglet technology on a number of business and commercial aircraft types.
