MD-80 Product Overview

The MD-80 Phase I Drag Reduction Package has its roots in the Cruise Performance Improvement Program (CPIP) conducted by McDonnell Douglas. A limited number of the CPIP elements were cut into production but most were not incorporated. Super98 is resurrecting the unused CPIP elements, adding elements developed by the Super98 engineering team.

The MD-80 Drag Reduction configuration yields a fuel burn reduction by more than 3.5%.

The Phase I Package addresses airframe gap reductions, seals, and aerodynamically efficient fairings with kit availability in the 3rd Qtr. of 2011.
