Metro Aerospace, LLC. and Lynden Air Cargo announced today plans for Lynden Air Cargo to outfit their C-130/L-382 Hercules fleet with drag reducing Microvanes™. Originally announced late in 2018, Lynden Air Cargo installed Microvanes on one of their long-haul transport Hercules aircraft after obtaining FAA STC. With immediate results posted on their maiden and subsequent voyages, Lynden is planning installations over the upcoming year for the rest of their fleet.
Leslie Peters, President, and CEO of Metro Aerospace said, “We are delighted that Lynden Air Cargo has seen the drag reducing results that Microvanes bring and decided to purchase for the remainder of their fleet. Not only are they improving their fleet’s operating efficiencies, but they are also significantly reducing carbon emissions which helps them to further achieve their Green Initiatives.”
