Aug 24, 2017: Duncan Aviation, the world’s largest privately owned maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facility is ready to install the FAA-Approved Transitional Winglet from Winglet Technology LLC on Citation Sovereign aircraft. A second winglet installation is planned to begin in mid-September.
The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) approved the STC (Supplemental Type Certificate) certifying the installation of Transitional Winglets on Sovereign aircraft. This winglet upgrade offers better operational flexibility and performance benefits, such as increased speed at altitude, increased range /payload, enhanced time-to-climb, and more.
Duncan Aviation installed the wing reinforcement on the Sovereign aircraft along with the winglet attach structure and Transitional Winglets and the aircraft was delivered in late May.
The aircraft service provider is authorised by Winglet Technology to install Transitional Winglets on Citation X and Sovereign aircraft.
“The Citation Sovereign is a solid aircraft with known reliability,” says Nick Huskey, Citation Service Sales Rep with Duncan Aviation. “Performance gains that come with the winglet upgrade are impressive. The increased speed and range absolutely speak for themselves and, of course, there is that ramp presence that is certain to turn heads.”
