delta Adding winglets to a plane enables it to travel roughly 350 nautical miles farther than a plane without them. #AvGeek 6d
  •   ssullivan823 @nsbjohn it makes the vortex smaller reducing drag so it makes the aircraft more fuel efficient. 5d
  •   freddyyvincent yall really suck at handling fragile things. 5d
  •   747tech Winglets have been used for a while now. The newest design was the 777 and 767-400 with raked wingtips. Still accomplishes the same goal. Moves the turbulence farther aft than the tip of the leading edge for better drag coefficient. 5d
  •   nsbjohn @ssullivan823 you are correct. I should have said the winglets reduce airflow slip over the wing tip and the effect is a higher intensity or speed of the vortex. ..not a larger vortex. It does make the wing more efficient. ..but it does intensify the wake turbulence produced by the wing. ..this is why departure spacing is larger on a/c equipped with winglets. Would you agree? 5d
