Main Wing


The outstanding wing design is the key element behind the Dornier 228 best-in-class performance.

  • The supercritical profile Do A-5 reduces drag by up to 30%, retains good characteristics in icing conditions, and ensures roll control even in full stalls
  • The optimised wing shape keeps secondary drag as low as possible (reduced wing vortex by triangular shape of wing tips)
  • The box type structure and the manufacturing process ensure the highest possible accuracy over the lifecycle
