NOEL YANTOS - AMAZING PERFORMANCE WITH ATLAS®
"I have had the pleasure of Flying the Tamarack® Active Winglet-equipped Citation Jet. I think we all come to an idea like this with some skepticism. Having taught and flown the Citation Jet for the last 10 years, I had a healthy dose. I was simply amazed at the performance. From the moment of rotation you can instantly notice a substantial difference. The airplane literally jumps from the runway and climbs at max gross weight with no hint of slowing down. I have never seen a straight CJ climb and accelerate at the same time. That is usually reserved for its bigger brothers- the CJ3 and CJ4.
I can only begin to imagine what Active Winglets will do for those aircraft. As the flight continued, I noticed that it would carve through the air in a steep turn with an increase in stability I had not felt before. In turbulence you could look out the window and see the Active Winglets doing their job with no “stick feel” whatsoever. 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.”
