A PLEASANT SURPRISE
I recently had the good fortune to fly N122LM one of the Tamarack® modified CJ1+ aircraft with CJP’s membership chairman Steven Foote. To say I was pleasantly surprised would be a large understatement.

The Active Winglet system is the answer to all of our questions on how to design a 100% optimum winglet design without having to redesign the entire wing structure.
- Pablo C. Branco, Goulian Aerosports Team Coordinator
"This was the first “production” CJ with the winglets. On first observation I was encouraged by their design as it seemed to solve the riddle of “what” to do to combat excessive wing loading to an aircraft that was never designed for winglets. The engineering just makes sense. "
- Tyson Teeter / SouthWind Global Aviation, Co-Owner and Operations.
"I recently had the pleasure of flying the Tamarack® straight CJ 525, equipped with the company’s Active Winglet technology.
Climbing to FL410 in 31 minutes with a takeoff weight of 10200lb (3220lb of fuel) was amazing. Trying steep turns and maneuvers with the yaw damper off was a real eye opener. The stats that Tamarack® has on its web page are dead on."
- Steve Bradley, LOFT Flight Instructor
"I want to thank the Tamarack® Aerospace Group for the opportunity to fly its CJ, equipped with your Active Winglet technology. Without question they exceeded my expectations - which were already high based on your reported data. I would expect Cessna to incorporate your winglets on their entire fleet as quickly as it can be done.”
--- John Hammill, N300BV,
"I frequently encounter airplanes and products that don't quite live up to their manufacturer's claims, but the ATLAS® is everything that Tamarack® claims, and more."
-Randall Brink, ATP, CE-500, CE525S,
"Tamarack® has done an amazing thing. They have opened my eyes to a new aerodynamic possibility and reminded me it’s an exciting time in aviation. You have to fly it to believe it. I urge you to do just that.”
--- Noel Yantos, president of LOFT
"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,
"I have been excited about Tamarack® Active Winglets since I first heard about them several years ago. So getting to fly an aircraft with them installed was a real thrill."
- Gene Tucker, LOFT Flight Instructor
Harry Hedaya reports on his Active Winglet equipped CJ525 flight to FL410 - "in under 30 minutes (inclusive of a brief hold at 12,000 for ATC), and to my surprise used under 500 pounds of fuel."
