Signature TECHNICAir completes first Tamarack Active Winglet Installation
Sandpoint, Idaho, USA, July 17, 2019 – Tamarack Aerospace Group has announced the first Bournemouth installation of its ATLAS Active Winglets for the Cessna Citation business jet line, completed by its service partner, Signature TECHNICAir.
“This was Signature TECHNICAir’s first Tamarack Active Winglet upgrade and the first carried out on a British registered aircraft,” says John Hamshere, Sales & Customer Support Manager for EMEA. “We are very pleased with the result; the aircraft looks fantastic.”
Mark Larsen, Director of MRO Sales for Signature TECHNICAir, says, “It’s a high-quality kit that is far easier to install than traditional passive winglets because there is no structural reinforcement required in the wing.”
“The Active Winglet technology offers a unique experience and value,” says Tamarack president Jacob Klinginsmith. “Our customers appreciate the fuel efficiency, increased range, ride smoothing, stability and improved performance as well as ramp appeal.”
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 worldwide for installation on the Cessna CJ, CJ1, CJ1+, M2, CJ2, CJ2+, CJ3 and CJ3+ business jets.
Hamshere says, “In this installation, the customer took advantage of the upgrade downtime to utilise the Citation Service Centre specialists at Signature TECHNICAir in Bournemouth UK for a major airframe maintenance input to run alongside the installation.”
“It’s a win-win for our European customers to be able to have both services completed at the same time,” says Klinginsmith.
