FAA Certifies Split Scimitar Winglets

[Aviation Today February 7, 2014] The FAA has issued Supplemental Type Certification for the Aviation Partners Boeing (APB) Split Scimitar Winglets. 
 
APB received the STC for installation of the winglets on Boeing 737-800 aircraft.  The winglets use computational fluid dynamic technology to redefine the aerodynamics of the company's existing Blended Winglet product.
 
United Airlines is the launch customer for the Split Scimitar Winglet.  
 

We have seen record breaking pre-certification orders on this program demonstrating the credibility our products have developed with the marketplace.  Including our program launch customer, United Airlines, who has now partnered with APB on five unique certification programs, we expect to see a dozen airlines operating Split Scimitar Winglets in revenue service within the next couple of months," said Mike Stowell, executive vice president and chief technical officer at APB.
