PRIDE SCULPTED WING TIPS

PERFORMANCE MODIFICATION

 

    Pride Sculpted Wingtips were designed by a Lockheed/Martin Aerodynamic Engineer (who participated in the F-35 Program) for our L-39s. Using Computational Fluid Dynamics our Aerodynamicist identified the L-39 tip tanks as being the highest drag item on the aircraft.

Pride Sculpted Wingtips not only change the visual look of your L-39 by streamlining the wings, but they also drastically increase performance. Our flight tests over many installations have resulted in the following observed improvements:

 - Increase aircraft speed by15-20 KIAS. Go faster or pull the power back and decrease your fuel burn! (Done correctly, this could even offset the new, decreased fuel capacity...)

- Initial climb rate increase of 500 - 700 FPM. Climb to FL280 in 15 minutes!
-- 80 lb weight decrease.
-- Enhanced handling and much better roll rate.
