performance improvement

In development is our Boeing 767-300 Supplemental Type Certificate for performance improvement, yielding significant field performance enhancement that will yield added revenues, especially in short field operations or hot and high airports.

A unique but validated way of improving L/D by way of a wing extension, our design requires no added structural beef up as is usually the case with large winglets.  Instead, DCA employs a load alleviation device to ensure safety margins to ultimate loads for certification and to maintain limits of validity on life cycle.  This combined with the -400ER Boeing wingtip designed in Long Beach contribute to over 6.5% improvement in L/D and vastly improved field performance and approach speeds.

In addition to field performance, the DCA STC provides over  6%  in fuel consumption reduction and corresponding range improvement.
