Certified: Composite Winglets For Beechcraft King Air 90x

HBC Says Modification Increases Speed, Range

Testing and certification on the Beechcraft King Air 90x composite winglet modification has been completed, Hawker Beechcraft Services (HBS) said Monday. Winglets for King Air C90 and E90 models are now available for installation at the company's network of factory-owned service centers.

Introduced at last summer's EAA AirVenture, the King Air 90x upgrade is a two-part conversion that synergizes the aerodynamic benefits of winglets with a gross weight increase to create enhanced King Air 90 handling/range/payload capability. HBS is offering the upgrades individually or combined in a competitively priced package.
 
"The King Air 90x package provides added value and versatility to an aircraft that already has a well-deserved reputation as a workhorse," said Christi Tannahill, HBC vice president, Global Customer Support. "By combining the upgrades and accomplishing the modifications during a single service event, operators can effectively multiply the return on their investment several times over. Additionally, the performance enhancements gained through the installation of the winglets will, over time, provide enough fuel savings to offset much of the cost of the modification."

The winglet system increases wing aspect ratio to reduce induced drag and allows the King Air to fly faster on less fuel. By increasing wing surface area, the winglets provide greater slow speed handling and improved stability at higher flight levels.
