after listening to the podcast with Aviation Partners chairman found here
he states that winglets for the A380 are a possibility, mentioning they would be around 17 feet tall, does this mean basic research has been done regarding the A380?
also is anybody able to guess what fuel effiency gains this could bring? because I can imagine the A380 in 3 or 4 years time with x ton weight reduction, at least 2% engine SFC reductions and AP winglets and it suddenly looks too good to refuse.
anyone able to photoshop an artists impression?
