The first Cessna Citation X, the world’s fastest non-military aircraft, has been retrofitted with elliptical winglets by Winglet Technology.

The Citation X is the world’s fastest non-military aircraft with a top speed of Mach 0.92 and can fly.

The elliptical winglet shape ensures the lift distribution closely matches optimum lift distribution along the span of the wing to reduce the induced drag of the aircraft.

The drag reduction will in-turn decrease fuel consumption, increase speed and increase the Citation X’s range to 3,070nm.

The retrofit kit includes flight and operations manual supplements and the replacement of existing anti-collision and position light system with LED versions.

Cessna plans to offer installation of the elliptical winglet on the Citation X at all of its nine service centres throughout the US and in Europe.
