Blended Winglets save Airlines Money

A more efficient way of adding effective wingspan while reducing drag and improving performance further. What the heck is a Blended Winglet? Blended Winglets lower drag and improve aerodynamic efficiency, thus reducing airliner fuel consumption. Depending on the mission, blended winglets can reduce cruise fuel mileage by up to 6 percent! In addition, Winglet equipped airplanes can achieve higher operational altitudes ? approximately 1,200 ft. -- than a baseline non-winglet equipped airplane and allow a greater dash speed.
