Aviation Partners Boeing (APB) (Seattle) has announced Gol Linhas Aereas Inteligentes Airlines (Gol Transportes Aereos) (Sao Paulo) has ordered Split Scimitar Winglets for 15 of its Boeing Next-Generation 737-800 aircraft.

According to APB, “APB’s latest program is the culmination of a five-year design effort using the latest computational fluid dynamic technology to redefine the aerodynamics of the Blended Winglet into an all-new Split Scimitar Winglet. The unique feature of the Split Scimitar Winglet is that it uses the existing Blended Winglet structure, but adds new aerodynamic scimitar tips and a large ventral strake.”
