Meet Philip Goforth, an ATLAS-modified Cessna CitationJet flyer with an aviation career as unique as it is adventurous! Goforth began flying at a young age in Alaska, piloting bush missions before converting to a commercial pilot with a penchant for playing with gyrocopters and variety of other flying machines. He has been highly involved in International Formula 1 Pylon Air Racing for 11 years, serving as Pilot Commuter Chair for 3 years before being elected Formula 1 Class President in 2017. Since the December 2019 Active Winglet installation, he has been greatly pleased with the CitationJet’s advanced performance echelon. Tamarack is delighted to see such a versatile pilot using our technology on a regular basis!

Such a large spectrum of customers means different priorities and concepts of what a return looks like.

When flying a Citation Jet with Pitch Mode on Autopilot, I can climb to the maximum certified ceiling without much attention to speed, or needing to change modes while ascending.
