Active Winglets: A Leap Forward in Aerodynamics Technology
Winglets are typically added to aircraft to improve performance and efficiency, but they change the aerodynamic load on an airplane’s wing, requiring additional internal structural reinforcements. Tamarack Aerospace has developed an active winglet system that includes a wingtip extension and winglet, and an active load-alleviation system that counteracts gust and maneuver loads, negating the need for the typical structural reinforcement of the wing.
