STG Aerospace has added to its safTsign product range with visiWing, which is designed to minimise the risk of collision from ground handling vehicles following installation of the Aviation Partners Boeing (APB) 737NG Split Scimitar Winglet.
“At STG Aerospace we pride ourselves on our ability to develop innovative solutions to solve specific customer problems – in this case the increased ground risk of collision for the fast growing number of airlines adopting the APB Split Scimitar Winglet,” said Marcus Williams, STG Aerospace’s director of sales and marketing. “Working closely with APB, and supported by its official No Technical Objection (NTO), visiWing ensures the enhanced visibility of the winglet in daylight and the dark, reducing the risk and associated high cost of collision with ground vehicles.”
visiWing incorporates STG’s photoluminescent and reflective lighting technologies and expertise, expanding the company’s reach to outside of the aircraft cabin.
STG Aerosopace announced at the ap&m summit in London that Luxair would become the first carrier to install visiWing. "Under the current contract, three Luxair 737-800 aircraft will be fitted with visiWing by end of May 2015," stated Williams.
