Tamarack Aerospace Group announced today that it has approved four new independent maintenance facilities as authorized installers of its ATLAS Active Winglets for the Cessna Citation business jet line.
The new authorized installers are:
- Eagle Aviation, Columbia SC
- Western Aircraft, Boise ID
- Northeast Air, Portland ME
- Duncan Aviation, Lincoln NE
Brian Cox, Chief Operating Officer of Tamarack Aerospace, said “It’s exciting that customers can now bring their aircraft to these world-class maintainers for their Active Winglet upgrade. Our Sandpoint, ID factory program, which offers a one week plus painting time installation time has proven extremely popular, but we realize that some owners will prefer to combine upgrades such as avionics or engine work, so this is a win-win for those customers. At the same time that they are performing an ADS-B or a flight deck upgrade, these facilities can be working on the ATLAS installation, which minimizes overall installation downtime. Our new installation partners are also conveniently located throughout the US, so the flight time to an Active Winglet upgrade center of your choice is reduced.”
The operational benefits that owners will see with an Active Winglet equipped aircraft are:
- Increased range.
- Maximum Zero Fuel Weight increase.
- Reduced time to climb to cruise altitude.
- Increased climb gradients.
- Improved single-engine climb performance.
- Ride smoothing and stability.
- Upgraded LED navigation & anti-collision lighting.
Tamarack Active Winglets are the only aerodynamic technology on the market today that can reduce time to climb and fuel burn, while increasing range and aircraft stability, without any structural reinforcement, yielding significant time and cost savings. Tamarack Active Winglets are approved via EASA and FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for installation on the Cessna CJ, CJ1, CJ1+, M2, CJ2, CJ2+, CJ3 and CJ3+ business jets.
About Tamarack Aerospace:
Idaho based Tamarack Aerospace Group Inc. invented and patented the revolutionary Active Winglet system. Tamarack’s certified Active Winglets are three to four times more efficient than passive (traditional) winglets. The Active Winglet system typically provides a reduction in fuel burn, performance gains and increased asset value. The Active Winglet system is comprised of a wing tip extension, a highly tuned winglet, and load alleviation technology. The load alleviation system counteracts gust or maneuver wing loading events and eliminates the heavy wing reinforcement and structural additions required by all passive winglets.
