WEST STAR AVIATION NAMED AUTHORIZED BLR AEROSPACE DEALER FOR KING AIR WINGLETS
West Star Aviation recently joined the network of authorized dealers for BLR Aerospace Super King Air Winglet System and associated products. The dealer agreement gives West Star the authorization to provide and install these BLR products on King Air 90, 200, and 300 series aircraft at their Grand Junction, CO, Dallas, TX, and Columbia, SC facilities. Products offered include the popular Super King Air Winglet System, extended length de-ice boots, and LED lighting upgrades.
“We are looking forward to enhancing our capabilities and expanding our reach to King Air owners and operators,” says Russ Williams, Business Development, West Star Aviation. “By joining the BLR dealership network, we are one step closer to making our facilities a one-stop-shop for our King Air customers.”
West Star’s Grand Junction facility is a factory authorized King Air maintenance facility and also offers popular Garmin G1000 installations, Raisbeck products, Blackhawk engine conversions, as well as complete paint and interior refurbishment and landing gear overhauls in one location.
“We can do it all for our King Air customers,” says Williams.
BLR reports the demonstrated benefits of the winglets include increased rate of climb, reduced take-off distance, slower controlled landings and 10-15% decrease in landing field length. Winglets also offer the operator a potential cruise speed increase at higher flight levels or a fuel burn reduction of approximately 3-4% and a range increase of up to 12.5%, as well as improved stability and control in slow flight and improved handling qualities at higher altitudes. Over 450 King Airs worldwide have installed the BLR Winglet System.
