Winglets offer the opportunity not only to improve an airplanes operation performance but also its environmental performance.
Airport Noise Levels can be dramatically affected with the
installation of Winglets:
- Noise-affected area on takeoff reduced by 6.5 %
- Take-off and approach certified noise levels are lowered
- Lower fuel burn also equates to reduced emissions:
- Up to a 6% reduction in CO2 and as much as a 8% reduction in NOx is possible
