Mbb Studies Variable Camber Wings to Improve Lift, Expand Fleet Uniformity

Bremen—Using traditional lift devices to change the shape of transport aircraft wings in flight could provide fuel savings of up to 6% and allow large increases in maximum operating weight without redesigning the wing. The variable camber wings also would reduce the need for airlines to have several aircraft types for different route lengths and for manufacturers to produce as many versions of a single aircraft type, according to studies being done at Messerschmitt-Boelkow-Blohm here.
