Cessna installs Winglet Technology winglets on 30th Citation X

Cessna Aircraft’s service center has completed the 30th installation of Winglet Technology’s elliptical winglets on a Citation X business jet.

Winglet Technology, based in Wichita, received a Supplemental Type Certification from the Federal Aviation Administration for the retrofit in July 2009.

Since then, winglets have been installed on Citation Xs from Europe, Saudi Arabia, Canada, Brazil and Mexico, Winglet Technology said.

The winglets improve the range and aerodynamic performance of the aircraft, the company said. The winglets were also selected for the Citation Ten business jet, the upgraded version of the Citation X announced at October’s National Business Aviation Association’s annual meeting and convention.
