Copa Airlines orders Split Scimitar Winglets

Aviation Partners Boeing announced the order of up to 100 Split Scimitar Winglet Systems for Boeing Next-Generation 737 aircraft by Copa Holdings, S.A. This program is the culmination of a five year design effort using the latest computational fluid dynamic technology to redefine the aerodynamics of the Blended Winglet into an all new Split Scimitar Winglet. The unique feature of the Split Scimitar Winglet is that it uses the existing Blended Winglet structure, but adds new strengthened spars, aerodynamic scimitar tips, and a large ventral strake. This advanced technology winglet is the ultimate winglet in terms of performance, without increasing existing wing span.
