The most popular aircraft in the world should have the product with the best performance record in the world. That, of course, is Met-Co-Aire’s Hoerner style wing tip.
Designed from military research and applied to civilian aircraft, the Hoerner wing tip is one of the best modifications you can make to your aircraft. Their wing tip gives improvements in all of the important areas of aircraft performance, and usually costs less than a replacement part.
Their design reduces drag while smoothing the airflow along the wing and control surfaces. By minimizing the vortices caused by the wing and actually having them start later, their tip gives performance increases without the usual penalties. They CAN get increases in climb and in cruise. They CAN reduce stall without adversely affecting handling. You may not think you’re taking off from a carrier, but you may think you are flying a new plane.
Typical Improvements are:
• Increase cruise 3-6 mph
• Increase rate of climb 75-100 ft./min.
• Increase stability with more positive aileron control
• Decrease stall speed 4-5 mph
• Decrease distance for take-off
• Gives a modern, more aerodynamic profile
