Eagle Aviation announced its first Tamarack Active Winglet demonstration day which will be held on November 13th, 2018 at Eagle’s facility at Columbia Metropolitan Airport in Columbia, SC. The event will feature a presentation by Tamarack’s Brian Cox, as well as Active Winglet-equipped CJ1 and CJ2+ aircraft. Demonstration flights will be available in the CJ1 for attendees who have pre-registered.
Brian Cox, President of Tamarack Aerospace, said “We are really honored that Eagle Aviation would host this event for our mutual customers. Eagle was at the forefront of our independent installation network and has already completed several Active Winglet installations which upgraded both the beauty and performance of the aircraft. We are looking forward to showing interested pilots and owners what a difference the technology can make on their jet.”
Cary Friedman, Eagle Aviation, added “We’ve been very happy with the product quality, looks and performance of the CitationJets that we’ve upgraded, and felt that an event where our customers and friends could experience this technology for themselves would be both productive and educational. We’re excited to have not one but two Active Winglet CJs at the event. CJ owners and pilots who would like to request a demo should reach out to us soon by calling Eagle Aviation or via our website and we can schedule their flight.”
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, DGAC Mexico and Transport Canada Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for installation on the Cessna CJ, CJ1, CJ1+, M2, CJ2, CJ2+, CJ3 and CJ3+ business jets.
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.
About Tamarack Aerospace:
Idaho-based Tamarack Aerospace Group invented and patented the revolutionary ATLAS ® Active Winglet system. The Active Winglet system is comprised of a wing tip extension, a highly tuned winglet, wing loading sensors and a moveable load alleviation surface. The fully autonomous, fail-passive, load alleviation system counteracts gust or maneuver induced wing loading. Tamarack’s certified Active Winglets for Cessna CitationJet C525, C525A and C525B provide greater efficiency, without the weight penalty of structural reinforcement required by passive winglets, and typically provide better fuel economy, performance gains and increased asset value.
