Split scimitar winglets unveiled for BBJ family


Split scimitar winglets are now standard on new BBJs. The BBJ, a business jet based on the next-generation 737 family, is the first business jet to offer the split scimitar winglets as a standard feature. The split scimitar winglets – designed, developed and certified by Aviation Partners Boeing (APB) – will also be offered for retrofit on in-service BBJs by Aviation Partners (API).

The split scimitar winglet takes the existing blended winglet and adds a scimitar tip and downward strake. Boeing Business Jets says the split scimitar winglet gives the BBJ family up to 2.2% more range on a 6,000 nautical mile mission.
