For immediate release
Active Winglets Upgrade for Citations Now Available at Bournemouth, UK Location
Tamarack Aerospace Group announced today that it has approved Signature TechnicAir in Bournemouth UK as an authorized installer of its ATLAS ® Active Winglets for the Cessna Citation business jet line.
Brian Cox, Chief Operating Officer of Tamarack Aerospace, said “It’s exciting that customers can now bring their aircraft to this world-class maintainer for their Active Winglet upgrade. Many owners will prefer to combine their Active Winglet upgrade with avionics or engine work, so this is a win-win for our European customers. At the same time that they are performing an engine overhaul or a flight deck upgrade, Signature TechnicAir can be working on the ATLAS installation, which minimizes overall installation downtime.”
Randy Deal, Director of MRO Sales for Signature TechnicAir, said “We’re excited to now have our Bournemouth team be an authorized installer for Tamarack’s Active Winglets. It’s a high-quality kit that is far easier to install than traditional passive winglets because there is no structural reinforcement required in the wing. The performance benefits on the CJ series are a good match for the needs of our CitationJet customer base and we look forward to demonstrating this product to them.”
The operational benefits that owners will see with an Active Winglet equipped aircraft are:
- Increased range.
- Maximum Zero Fuel Weight increase.
- Reduced time to climb to cruise altitude.
- Increased climb gradients.
- Improved single-engine climb performance.
- Ride smoothing and stability.
- Upgraded LED navigation & anti-collision lighting.
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, FAA, ANAC and Transport Canada Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for installation on the Cessna CJ, CJ1, CJ1+, M2, CJ2, CJ2+, CJ3 and CJ3+ business jets.

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.
Tamarack Aerospace will be exhibiting at the upcoming Farnborough International Airshow 2018 in Hall 2 Pavilion 2186.
