Aviation Partners Boeing said that Air Transat has ordered split scimitar winglets for its fleet of Boeing (NYSE: BA) Next Generation 737-800 aircraft.
APB´s newest program is the culmination of a five year design effort using the latest computational fluid dynamic technology to redefine the aerodynamics of the blended winglet into an all-new split scimitar winglet. The unique feature of the split scimitar winglet is that it uses the existing blended winglet structure, but adds new strengthened spars, aerodynamic scimitar tips, and a large ventral strake.
Aviation Partners Boeing is a Seattle based joint venture of Aviation Partners, Inc. and The Boeing company. Its website is at www.aviationpartnersboeing.com
Air Transat is Canada´s leading holiday travel airline. Air Transat is a business unit of Transat A.T. Inc., an integrated international tour operator with more than 60 destination countries and that distributes products in over 30 countries.
