  1. Wing tip

    A wing tip is the part of the wing that is most distant from the fuselage of a fixed-wing aircraft. Because the wing tip shape influences the size and drag of the wingtip vortices, tip design has produced a diversity of shapes, including: ⁕Squared-off ⁕Aluminium tube bow ⁕Rounded ⁕Hoerner style ⁕Winglets ⁕Drooped tips ⁕Raked wingtips ⁕Tip tanks ⁕Sails ⁕Fences ⁕End plates Winglets have become popular additions to high speed aircraft wanting to increase fuel efficiency by reducing drag from wingtip vortices. In lower speed aircraft, the effect of the wingtip shape is less apparent, with only a marginal performance difference between round, square, and Hoerner style tips. The slowest speed aircraft, STOL aircraft, may use wingtips to shape airflow for controlability at low airspeeds. Wing tips are also an expression of aircraft design style, so their shape may be influenced by marketing considerations as well as by aerodynamic requirements. Wing tips are often used by aircraft designers to mount navigation lights, anti-collision strobe lights, landing lights, handholds, and identification markings. Wing tip tanks can act as a winglet and distribute weight more evenly across the wing spar.
