Western Aircraft completes its first Tamarack winglet installation


Western Aircraft, a Greenwich AeroGroup company, announced that it recently completed its first installation of a Tamarack ATLAS Active Winglet product on a Cessna Citation CJ1+ aircraft.

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.

“This modification dramatically improves the overall performance and utility of Citation aircraft,” said Western Aircraft’s Director of Sales and Marketing Kerry Heiss. “The operational benefits that our customers will experience as a result of this installation is phenomenal, and we are extremely proud to be associated with this Idaho-based company.”

The ATLAS Active Winglets provide for a faster time to climb, increased range, a higher useful load, and in some cases, a higher cruise speed. Additionally, it lowers operating costs without the weight and complexity penalty of traditional winglets.

ATLAS® Active Winglets are available as upgrades to the Cessna C525 series which includes the CJ, CJ1, CJ1+, M2, CJ2, CJ2+, CJ3 and CJ3+ business jets.

Western Aircraft was recently named a Tamarack dealer.
