Tamarack Aerospace has joined the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) Global Coalition for Sustainable Aviation, a forum of stakeholders aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The Coalition currently consists of 25 members, spanning airports, OEMs and education institutions.
“Climate change is one of the biggest threats our globe faces, and the aviation industry must step up and do its part to embrace more sustainable practices,” said Tamarack CEO and co-founder Nick Guida. “We are looking forward to collaborating with other members of the ICAO Global Coalition for Sustainable Aviation. Together, there is nothing our industry cannot accomplish.”
Duncan Walker, CEO of another recent member, Skyports, told Corporate Jet Investor: “Our infrastructure for electric vertical take-off and landing [eVTOL] aircraft is designed to provide a safe and sustainable operating environment, helping to create an emissions-free alternative air transportation system in the world’s most congested and polluted locations. We are delighted to join the ICAO Global Coalition for Sustainable Aviation and to be part of such an important industry effort aimed at accelerating the introduction of cleaner, greener aviation solutions.”
Tamarack Active Winglets consist of a wing extension, a vertical winglet for some aircraft, and an autonomous load alleviation system. Tamarack Active Winglets modifications are featured on more than 140 CitationJets. Some are being considered for other aircraft including single-aisle commercial, freighter and military aircraft.
Tamarack is taking part in the 2021 ICAO Stocktaking Preview Seminar on August 10, 2021 from 9amto 11am ET. This seminar will discuss the main challenges aviation faces on the road to decarbonisation, as well as provide insights into the innovations that will be on display during the main event.
