Aviation Partners announced yesterday that it received EASA STC approval for its high-Mach blended winglets on the Dassault Falcon 900 series. In the six months since the company obtained equivalent FAA approval, more than a dozen 900-series Falcons have been fitted with the winglets, which reduce drag and thus increase range by up to 7 percent, the company said. Aviation Partners is now working on a similar winglet certification for the Falcon 50 series.
