FACC selected to provide Blended Winglets for Falcon and Hawker 800

FACC AG is successfully expanding its winglet business segment: In addition to Boeing, the Falcon 2000, Falcon 900 and Hawker 800 business jets will be flying with Blended Winglets™ from the Austrian aviation supplier. FACC has signed contracts with Aviation Partners Inc, Seattle, USA, the inventor of Blended Winglets™ Technology, as well as with the French aircraft manufacturer Dassault Aviation for the production of the fuel-saving, efficiency-enhancing winglets for these business jets.

The agreement with Aviation Partners covers the supply of all winglets for the Hawker 800 as well as retrofit-winglets for the Falcon 2000 in-service aircraft. The agreement with Dassault Aviation covers the supply of the winglets for in-production Falcon 900LX & 2000LX business jets. This contract marks the beginning of cooperation between FACC and Dassault Aviation.

The contracts represent winglet shipsets for 500 business jets.

"FACC and Aviation Partners Boeing have been successfully working together for ten years. During this time we have been able to supply over 3,000 Boeing 737 and 757 aircraft with winglets. The new contracts for the delivery of Falcon and Hawker winglets enable FACC to further expand cooperation with Aviation Partners and strengthen its position as a high-performance competency center for winglets," said Martin Boegl, Director of Aerostructures Programs for FACC AG. „We are very proud to welcome Dassault Aviation as a new FACC customer. We are looking forward to a long, mutual beneficial cooperation, in which we can make use of our comprehensive expertise in the production of winglets and offer our customer high-quality turnkey solutions."

On the business jets Blended Winglets™ provide a fuel and emissions reduction of 5 to 7%. This means a measurable reduction in environmental impact and significant savings of operational costs - benefits that airlines are taking advantage of in times of rising fuel prices. The winglets optimize aerodynamics because they drastically reduce the wingtip vortices. With winglets, aircrafts fly farther, higher and more efficiently. Other benefits include lower engine maintenance, improved takeoff performance and a reduction in noise near airports.

FACC also produces winglets for the Boeing 737-700/800/-900, Boeing Business Jets and Boeing 757-200 as well as for the A350 XWB.
