Cessna has selected Winglet Technology’s elliptical winglet for the new Citation Ten. The winglet was jointly developed and certified by Winglet Technology and Cessna Aircraft during a collaborative STC project. Winglet Technology initially received FAA approval of the STC permitting installation of the elliptical winglets on the Citation X in June last year. Since that time, Winglet Technology has received EASA (Europe), ANAC (Brazil), TCCA (Canada) and DGAC (Mexico) STC approval for winglet installations on the Citation X. The winglet’s elliptical shape ensures the lift distribution of the wing closely matches optimum lift distribution along the span of the wing, which minimizes the induced drag of the aircraft.
