A Citation Sovereign managed and operated by First Wing Charter and Management is undergoing a major facelift at the company’s headquarters in Indianapolis, Ind. Eagle Creek Aviation, the parent company of First Wing, is in the process of upgrading the business jet by installing Winglet Technology’s unique Transitional winglet design.
The Transitional winglet upgrade will provide the Sovereign with even greater operational flexibility along with a 475 lb. gross weight increase. The Transitional winglet design provides superior aerodynamic performance across a broad range of Mach numbers and operating conditions. The Transitional winglet design ensures the lift distribution of the wing closely matches the optimum lift distribution along the span of the wing, which significantly reduces the induced drag of the aircraft. The resulting drag reduction enhances the overall operational performance and provides significant performance benefits for the Citation Sovereign.
The project is expected to be finished this week and is available for trips to the West Coast, Denver, Florida and more. The jet can seat up to nine passengers and is equipped with inflight Wi-Fi. Stay tuned for pictures of the finished product!
