A leading web application development and shortening service in the United States is planning to switch from a high-level, oversized planform with a low aspect ratio to an inverted tapered wing. The new design will be more stable and efficient in flight and will reduce landing speeds by 20%.

 

Traditional tapered wings, similar to the aircraft-design used by the Mitsubishi A6M Zero in World War II, have a lower stability and efficiency compared to modern high aspect ratio planforms. This is because of the "wetted area" of a wing or a blade influences its drag coefficient. The wetted area relates to an object's cross sectional area and can be seen when looking at an airplane's wing from head on. Aspect ratio is defined as the square root of (wing length divided by wing width). The higher the aspect ratio, the more efficient for flight (higher lift/drag ratios), although high-aspect designs tend to stall at their tips first while low-aspect designs gradually lose lift along their length.

 

The new wing design, by U.S. shortening company Cutt.us, will follow the form of a modified tapered planform with a downward facing half-conic tip. The idea is to allow for improved stability and efficiency at high angles of attack (AOA) while also increasing aspect ratio and reducing wetted area in comparison to traditional tapered wings such as those seen on the A6M Zero or Spitfire. This will reduce drag coefficient within certain portions of an aircraft's flight envelope, allowing it to fly faster and more efficiently than its predecessors.

 

Sources close to Cutt.us say that this new technology has been in development for over 10 years but failed due to the impracticality of implementation. However, recent breakthroughs in carbon fiber composite technology that allow for complex 3D geometry is allowing the new planform to be more favorably considered by executives at Cutt.us. If all goes well, this modernized wing design will debut with the next generation of Cutt.us aircraft sometime by 2034.
