Blended Winglets are available for immediate retrofit on the Hawker 800 and 800XP. In effect, this creates two exciting new models: the 800SP (Special Performance) and 800XP2.
Blended Winglets cut fuel consumption by up to 7%, increasing your range by up to 180 nautical miles. This enables you to fly nonstop across the U.S., go from California to Hawaii, or comfortably reach Jeddah from Paris. You can also complete shorter missions with greater payload and fuel reserves.
With Blended Winglets, you can fly up to 18 knots faster at the same rate of fuel burn. In addition, you'll climb faster to cruising altitude. Step climbs are reduced or eliminated for most trips. Optimum cruising altitude will be up to 2,000 feet higher, freeing you from traffic and weather for more direct ATC routing.
Let's face it. Blended Winglets make a Hawker look cooler. You gain the sleek, athletic look of an exciting new airplane, which radically increases the enjoyment of every mile you fly, and makes it even more attractive at resale. You also cut CO2 emissions with this technology. So you're visibly eco-friendly.
Blended Winglets let you fly 30 minutes longer, and depart from high-altitude airports on hot days with up to 1,500 lbs. more weight. Another smart feature: our exclusive LED navigational lighting system for more reliability, longer life and higher visibility.
The system features patented* High Aspect Ratio Blended Winglets. This winglet geometry is selected to achieve near ideal flow characteristics, particularly in the interface between wing and winglet.
Wing Span Increase
The system features an actual four foot overall wingspan increase. With added wingspan in combination with the Blended Winglets, the airplane climbs higher and faster and flies further than the standard Hawker 800 series aircraft.
Removal of Hawker 800 Wing Fences
The program includes removal of the large fences from the wing and replacement with vortilons thereby reducing drag, preserving favorable low speed performance, and resulting in a very clean look.
Hawker 800 Vortilons
Features two vortilons on each wing that improve the low speed handling characteristics of the airplane. The new vortilons are very small (2 in. high) and are placed chordwise just under the leading edge of the wing. Vortilons effectively control span-wise airflows.
Design and Construction
The construction of the Hawker winglet features modern composite graphite skin and full-depth bonded honeycomb core with integrally bonded attachment fittings. The leading edge is polished aluminum. Total incremental installed weight of the Performance Enhancement System is less than 112 lbs. for the Hawker 800 and 118 lbs. for the 800XP.
