Winglet Technology has completed testing its new elliptical winglets on the Cessna Citation Sovereign. It is collaborating with the Citation service center network on the project and released test results for the $395,000 kit (uninstalled) today at NBAA 2014. Speed increases by 12 to 14 knots at FL450, time-to-climb direct to FL450 drops to 26 minutes and range increases by 265 nm with payloads over 1,450 pounds. FAA certification is pending. The company’s elliptical winglets for the Citation X were approved by the FAA in 2009.
