BLR Aerospace has named Burlington, Vermont-based Heritage Aviation as an authorized dealer for its King Air Winglet Systems. Under the terms of the agreement, Heritage will sell and install BLR's complete line of certified winglet systems for Beechcraft King Air series aircraft. Heritage Aviation is displaying a winglet-equipped King Air C90at the static display area (549).
Heritage has equipped its four King Air C90s with winglet systems. "We're already experiencing shorter time to climb and more efficient fuel burn," says Heritage Pilot Eric John. Depending on flight profile, the savings delivered by the winglets range from 5-15% in climb and 2-4% in cruise for composite savings of 3-5%, says BLR.
