Airlines have introduced “split scimitar” winglets into passenger service. The redesign now includes a downturned tip in addition to the traditional upturned wingtip that further reduces drag. This new split scimitar winglet design reduces fuel burn by up to 2%. The addition of the scimitar has caused some safety issues on the tarmacs however. With baggage handlers and vehicles oftentimes having to maneuver under the wings, the scimitar has reduced clearance height. This has caused Monster Motion Safety to introduce the NEW Wing Whip! The Wing Whip was designed to be placed under the wingtip to protect the scimitars on aircraft from damage by passing vehicles. The whip stands 7’ tall with two brightly colored whips held in a V-shaped pattern underneath the scimitar by the patent-pending Wing Whip Bracket. The bracket was designed to fit a standard delineator with a 16 lb. base (30 lb. base option available for windy locations).
