The most noticeable upgrade on the Westwind II private jet are the winglets. The conventional winglet design was shown to be more efficient and increased the lift-to-drag ratio when positioned above the tip tanks. What IAI regards to as its Sigma wing, a reshaped wing that holds 1.5 more fuel, permits a higher takeoff weight, reaches an initial cruise range of 2,000 feet higher, and boosts range by 5%, is another advancement the Westwind II possesses over its predecessor.
Westwind II’s fuselage is evocative of that of the Aero Commander, from which it is developed. Due to these improvements, the Westwind II has larger operating weights and enhanced performance in extreme temperatures. Westwind II private jet, like its predecessor, is powered by two Honeywell TFE731-3-1G turbofan engines. Each engine has a thrust rating of 3,700 lbs and an inspection interval of 4,200 hours.
