Boundary Layer Research
has conpleted the development of its new King Air 200 Winglets...
designed to aerodynamically enhance the King Air 200 series
aircraft. Certification is expected by the October '04 NBAA
Convention in Las Vegas.
BLR already manufactures performance enhancing winglets for the
Beechcraft Duke, known as Marquis Winglets. The new King Air 200
Winglets will offer similar benefits to King Air 200 model aircraft
and operators. As you may know, winglets increase the effective
wingspan of the aircraft and decrease lift induced drag.
BLR notes that their new line of winglets will give King Air 200
pilots the capacity for lower liftoff speeds in short-field
operations. When airborne, winglets provide increased high altitude
stability and better cruise efficiency resulting in reduced fuel
consumption or increased speed.
BLR President Bob Desroche feels that the development of the
King Air 200 Winglet is an achievement that will greatly benefit
customers. "The King Air 200 Winglet offers improvements in speed,
performance, fuel economy, and handling. It further provides pilots
with greater stability and safety margins. We're thrilled to be
adding the new winglets to our fixed wing product line."
In addition to winglets, BLR is also evaluating several other
performance enhancement devices aimed at improving runway and
