The first Citation X to be fitted with elliptical winglets has been delivered. The winglets were designed by Wichita-based Winglet Technology in collaboration with Cessna.
The patented shape increases lift and reduces drag on the aircraft, which decreases fuel consumption and increases the plane’s speed and range, Cessna said.
Plans are underway to offer the winglet to be installed on Citation Xs at Cessna’s nine service centers in the U.S. and Europe. Cessna Parts Distribution will provide spares support for the installed winglet.
