ATLAS Active Winglets will reduce time to climb, increase range and save fuel
NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition, Las Vegas, NV, October 10th, 2017
Tamarack Aerospace Group announced today at the annual National Business Aircraft
Association Convention a new program that will certify its ATLAS ® Active Winglets on the
Cessna Citation 560XL series which includes the Excel, XLS and XLS+ business aircraft.
Tamarack has also partnered with Innova Aerospace on their ‘myC560’ modernization program
for the Citation Ultra and Encore, which will now offer ATLAS Active Winglets.
“Now that we are closing in on certification of ATLAS on the CJ2 and CJ3 aircraft, we are excited
to announce that our next program will bring the same performance benefits to the 560XL series”
said Nick Guida, Founder and CEO of Tamarack Aerospace. “These are amazing aircraft but
operators know that they can rarely get to FL450 directly, which is where the efficiency is to be
gained. Remember, each thousand feet of altitude above FL410 will net a 4.2% specific range
increase, so Active Winglets have the potential to yield a 16% or greater range increase on this
aircraft which will be a game-changer.”
Justin Ryan, President of Tamarack Aerospace, added “Our ATLAS-equipped CJ3 is already
flying 2,100 nm missions at FL450, so Active Winglets on the 560XL series will frequently
enable transcontinental flights. Beyond range and time to climb, owners will also see the other
benefits of Tamarack’s Active Winglets such as stability, fuel economy, increased maximum
zero fuel weight, improved hot/high performance, aesthetics and value retention.”
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. Tamarack Active Winglets
are approved via EASA, ANAC and FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for installation on
the Cessna CJ, CJ1, CJ1+ and M2 business jets. Certifications pending on the CJ2/CJ2+ and
CJ3/3+ are projected for 1Q18. Certification on the Excel/XLS is projected for 1Q20.
About Tamarack Aerospace:
Idaho based Tamarack Aerospace Group Inc. invented and patented the revolutionary Active
Winglet system. Tamarack’s certified Active Winglets are three to four times more efficient than
passive (traditional) winglets. The Active Winglet system typically provides a reduction in fuel
burn, performance gains and increased asset value. The Active Winglet system is comprised of
a wing tip extension, a highly tuned winglet, and load alleviation technology. The load alleviation
system counteracts gust or maneuver wing loading events and eliminates the heavy wing
reinforcement and structural additions required by all passive winglets.
