split scimitar winglets

Recommended Posts

I know this has been previously addressed, however I'd like to inquire again seeing as I haven't seen a post regarding this topic for a year or so. (maybe I missed one) But out of curiosity could a split scimitar winglets be released similarly to how the P-8 was done? The only reason I am interested in this is because I fly fly allot and I haven't seen a 737 in while that doesn't have these new winglets, I fly United allot so I'm not exactly familiar with other airlines however I have seen that southwest, delta, Alaska, westjet, and Aeromexico all seem to be fitting their fleets with them.

 

Thanks

Not entirely. We didn't do the P-8 just because we felt like doing a P-8. See here:

If anything changes, we're usually pretty good about providing that in an update. There are several topics about this already.

Here's one that might interest you:

I agree! Its becoming increasingly popular with all 737s around Europe and North America. I know it saves on fuel burns etc, but id be satisfied with a pure visual addition regardless.  In the mean time ill be patiently waiting...

Although I don't care one way or the other, I would like to see PMDG release a hot fix for split scimitars immediately so these damn threads would stop.

What is interesting? It was promised in the forums by members of the PMDG team years ago. -David Lee

 

It's interesting that, not even a few months ago, you stated exactly the opposite.

 

Additionally, it wasn't promised. It was stated as "planned." Rather large difference.

+1 for split scimitar. Can be just cosmetic.
