Active Winglet / CJ2

Paul Walton flies his "Milk run" (3100 lb burned, 4 souls on board against the wind!)

With the 800 lb MZFW increase the winglets provide, the useful load is ~2570 lb while the stock CJ3 is ~2010 lb!

"“To be honest I was never a fan of winglets installed on any Citation including the Citation X. From my experience they just didn’t seem to provide much of an advantage for the expense but that scepticism changed one morning in September.”"

---Kirby Ortega, Yingling Aviation - Chief Pilot

Fly More Comfortably

  • Aesthetic Appeal (these things look great)

  • Ride Smoothing during turbulence

  • Fewer Fuel Stops

  • Environmentally Friendly

  • Fly higher

    • Higher Initial Climb Altitude (get over the weather faster)

    • Smoother air generally

    • Less headwind generally

    • Less traffic, ATC holds, and rerouting

Fly More Economically

  • Less fuel burn at higher altitudes (even heavy and very high, get to Certified Ceiling)

  • Less wear and tear on brakes, landing gear and tires

  • Resale Value (Vref estimates 100% return of value)

  • Lower approach power settings

  • More payload available with 800 lb MZFW increase

Fly Safer

  • Safer Takeoff & Landings

    • Slower speeds

    • Less energy

    • Runway length margin

  • Fly at higher altitudes

    • Get to Altitude faster

    • Less Traffic

    • Less weather

    • Get over weather faster

    • Driftdown altitudes are several thousand feet higher

  • Higher OEI climb performance

    • Increase safety margin departing Aspen and Telluride all year around

    • Increase safety margin year-round, but especially on hot days

  • Increased Stability

    • Like another yaw damper

    • High Altitude with INOP autopilot is not an event anymore

    • Rock Solid approaches and landings

  • Structural Envelope Protection with ATLAS® (protects from wing overloading)

Fly with more Utility

  • Range increase

  • MZFW increase (800 lb)

  • Shorter Runways

  • Hotter Conditions

  • Higher Airfields

  • Better High/Hot Performance (WAT)

  • Less fuel required means more payload available

  • Higher Initial Climb Altitudes

  • Redefine the mission of your aircraft



Total wingspan

  • OEM: 49 ft 10 in

  • Active Winglet: 55 ft 10 in


Aircraft wing efficiency is all about aspect ratio. Longer wings are more efficient for lift and have lower drag—think gliders. Winglets have the effect of increasing span, reduce drag from wing-tip vortices, and improve the lift distribution over the wing. Tamarack's Active Winglets are designed for maximum aerodynamic efficiency without the compromises requisite of Passive Winglets. The key to the Active Winglet technology is the load alleviation aspect, which allows for the addition of a wing extension and a highly tuned winglet design while keeping the original wing structure.
