In 2016, the Aircraft Performance Company GmbH has been founded by the two aviation engineers and aeronautics enthusiasts Hans-Jörg Petscher and Raymond Lucas.
The built up of an interdisciplinary core team starts in Hamburg, Germany.
Our focus is set on design and performance improvements resulting in increased fuel efficiencies of legacy and next generation aircraft.
We offer turnkey programs that emanate from creativity and curiosity and transform hands-on solutions into a tangible reality.
Our first product is a retrofit-able multifinger-wingtip which we named TRINITAIR.
This technology provides an enhanced aerodynamic solution supporting aircraft-manufacturers and airlines in their commitment to reduce CO2 emissions.
Plug & Fly
By means of our Wingtip Retrofit Solution,
developed for airliners, this is our first step forward to reduce aviation-related greenhouse gas emissions.
Cost-effective, creative and hands-on solutions for valuable
For a cleaner sky.
For a greener planet.
Our new wingtip technology TRINITAIR is the first step towards our goal to make a notable contribution to reduce the aviation related greenhouse gas emissions in the currently existing fleets.
Winglets are a truly great invention. They increase the effective aspect ratio of a wing without adding greatly to the structural stress and the weight of its structure.
Winglets are key to achieve a fuel burn reduction with most wing designs. Our three finger wingtip TRINITAIR configuration enhances the efficiency of this proven technology.
TRINITAIR was further designed as a cost-effective retrofit solution for valuable in-service aircraft.
Our Plug & Fly concept increases the number of aircraft which will be retrofitted and by this the number of aircraft which generate less emissions.
TRINITAIR will have the maiden flight for this new green technology on an AIRBUS A330 in 2021.
