New winglet allows King Air 90s to fly faster, cheaper

 

Many King Air C90s can now fly faster on less fuel.

Hawker Beechcraft Services announced this week at its Wichita headquarters that it has completed testing and certification on a composite winglet for the King Air 90X.

The composite combines the aerodynamic benefits of a winglet with a gross-weight increase that increases handling, range and payload, a press release said.

The 90X package, first unveiled at last year’s EAA Airventure, now is available at all U.S. HBS service centers.
