Tamarack Aerospace expands European Active winglet installation network
Tamarack Aerospace Group recently announced that it has approved three new maintenance providers in Europe as authorised installers of its ATLAS Active Winglets for the Cessna Citation business jet line.
The new authorised installers are:
- Signature TechnicAir in Bournemouth, United Kingdom
- Atlas Air, AG in Bremen, Germany
- Prince Aviation in Belgrade, Serbia
Brian Cox, President of Tamarack Aerospace, said “It’s exciting that customers can now bring their aircraft to these world-class maintainers for their Active Winglet upgrade. We’ve had many international customers fly their aircraft to our Sandpoint, ID factory for their ATLAS installation, but our new international dealer network of CitationJet experts is just so much more convenient and cost-effective. These are facilities that can combine an Active Winglet upgrade with avionics or engine work, which saves aircraft downtime and travel cost, so this is a win-win for our European customers.”
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, FAA, ANAC and Transport Canada Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for installation on the Cessna CJ, CJ1, CJ1+, M2, CJ2, CJ2+, CJ3 and CJ3+ business jets.
