PRIDE SCULPTED WING TIPS
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!
