With their drag reduction package for the Boeing 737-800, Aero Design Labs meets its goals for cutting fuel and carbon emissions.

A service-tested fuel burn decrease of between 1.5 and 2.0 percent /PRNewswire/ — FORT WORTH, Texas, August 2, 2023 — Aero Design Labs (ADL) released the findings of its in-service data validation today while using a Boeing 737-800 fitted with the company’s exclusive drag reduction equipment.

Following the installation and certification of our drag reduction kit on a 737-800 aircraft, Jeff Martin, president and chief executive officer of ADL, said, “Over the past few months, we have gathered and studied results from several hundred in-service revenue flights at various altitudes, speeds, and operating weights to verify the cruise fuel benefit of our kits. “We are happy to report that we have observed fuel use reductions during cruises of 1.5 to 2.0 percent. This is in line with the outcomes of our computational fluid dynamics (CFD) calculations, which were independently confirmed. Chris Jones, Chief Commercial Officer of ADL, said: “With solid fuel reduction data in hand, we can focus our efforts on assisting airlines around the world.” “We have a highly relevant solution that delivers on both for airlines flying the 737NG family of aircraft, whether airlines are trying to save on the cost side or the carbon reduction side. Our gear can immediately yield lower fuel costs and a substitute for carbon offsets because delays in the delivery of new aircraft have an impact on airlines’ aspirations to modernise their fleets. Our teams are continuously developing kit designs for other aircraft to expand our range of available products while also assisting airlines in meeting their cost- and carbon-reduction objectives. In the second half of 2023, our manufacturing partner NORDAM will increase production in response to client demand, and the certification process with other regional agencies, such as those in Europe and Latin America, will follow. Information on Aero Design Labs L.L.C.  Aero Design Labs (ADL), which was established in 2015, is a world leader in the study, creation, and installation of devices for reducing drag on aircraft fleets. ADL alterations to airlines’ current fleets may result in fuel savings and the ability to stop the emission of billions of pounds of CO2. Press inquiries: Richard Bartrem
