Also in his presentation, Tentor announced that his company is
developing a new version of its highly successful C295 aircraft, the
C295W. This version is fitted with winglets (hence the "W" suffix) and
has engine enhancements, developed in cooperation with engine
manufacturer Pratt & Whitney.
The winglets add 90 kg in weight to the aircraft – 30 kg for each
winglet and 30 kg for wing strengthening. The new version requires the
strengthening of certain wing spars and thicker upper panels for the
central and outer wings. In return, however, the aircraft gains
significantly improved performance in taking off and landing at hot and
high airfields, or greater range and endurance if operating from lower,
Flight trials of the prototype C295W concluded this month. The next
steps in the programme are the detailed design of the production
version, certification, industrialization and introduction into service.
Marketing of the new version has started, certification flights should
be completed by early next year with certification itself achieved
during the second quarter. The C295W will become the standard production
version of the aircraft from the fourth quarter of next year.
