The BBJ, a business jet based on the Next-Generation 737 family, is the first business jet to offer the Split Scimitar Winglets as a standard feature

The Split Scimitar Winglets – designed, developed and certified by Aviation Partners Boeing (APB) – also will be offered for retrofit on in-service BBJs by Aviation Partners Inc. (API).

“We are very excited to offer the Split Scimitar Winglet for our current BBJ family,” said Boeing Business Jets President David Longridge. “It is another example of our dedication to continuous improvement for the BBJ family, and we think our customers will enjoy the increased performance and design.”

The Split Scimitar Winglet gives the BBJ family up to an additional 2.2 percent of range capability on a 6,000 nautical mile mission, providing customers increased performance and flexibility. The Split Scimitar Winglet takes the existing blended winglet and adds a scimitar tip and downward strake.

The first in-service BBJ to have Split Scimitar Winglets installed is available to view at the static airplane display this week at EBACE.
