Winglets' effect on performance

Recommended Posts

Hello Captains, This is my first post in AVSIM, and before saying anything, I HATE MY SCREEN NAME! And unfortunately can't change it:( . I'm only a Cessna pilot in real life. Second, I had a question... I would like to know if winglets in PMDG's 737s change the performance like they do in real 737s?If they don't, then how are the planes configured? (performance wise)If they do, would you please give me some detail on that? (performance wise) Thanks everyone, Vala Nia

I recall a post like this one, and a PMDG developer did say that they do perform better/different with winglets. The only big difference in performance of the winglet version is about an overall 5% fuel savings a little better lift performance.Nick B.Continental Airlines Virtual 737NG Pilothttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/800driver.jpg--AMD Athlon XP 3200+ @ 2.2 Ghz (Equal to 2.8 ghz)400W Power supply3x 80 mm Case FansSoyo VIA KT600 Dragon PlusnVidia GeForce FX 5200 128 mb2 x 512 PC400100 GB Western DigitalMicrosoft Sidewinder Precision 2
