Wingtip Box & Fence

RUAG Aerostructures, as a center of excellence for Wingtip and Winglet structures, equips Airbus A380 family with Wingtip and Fence structures....

Wing tips, structures attached to the ends of the wings, reduce the wings’ resistance. For the A380 this produces less resistance with high lift coefficients, better stability around the lift axis and greater manoeuvrability around the longitudinal axis, since the lift coefficient is increased at the wing tips and in this way also the effectiveness of the aileron. RUAG Aerostructures has been producing the complete wing tip fence & box for the Airbus A380 since 2009.
