Hello humans! I know you have missed me… so here I am with some new interesting news!
Following the lead of Lufthansa Today JetBlue has announced plans to retrofit all of its Airbus aircrafts with noice reducing vortex generators. All of the Airbus aircrafts delivered to JetBlue since 2015 already have them installed but now they have committed to add those devices to all of its remaining 138 A320s and 8 A321s by 2021. The small devices disrupt wind over ports on the wing which can produce a “whistling” tone during approach into an airport.
The most surprising thing I found about this news is that the cost of retrofitting all of their Airbus aircrafts is less than $1 million.
I know RWA is not a news reporting agency but I found this step very interesting and no I’m not planning on spamming the forum with any kind of unimportant news.
Now I’d like to know if you have ever been on an aircraft with these devices? are they effective? . Also let me know your thoughts on this down below.
I hope you’re having a nice day.
