Factory Install of Active Winglets in Sandpoint, Idaho Lets Owners
Choose from Ski Package or Professional Pilot Valet Service
Tamarack Aerospace Group announced today the launch of its Winter 2019 ‘Ski or Valet’ sales promotion. CitationJet owners who choose to upgrade their aircraft with Active Winglets at the Tamarack factory in Sandpoint, ID can select either a one-week ski package for two at Schweitzer Mountain Resort or elect to have their aircraft professionally piloted to and from their home airport to the factory. This limited offer runs through March 31st, 2019.
Brian Cox, President of Tamarack Aerospace, said “Idaho is a beautiful location for skiing, and we have a lot of customers who have expressed interest in taking a mini ski vacation while we are upgrading their aircraft. This limited time promotion includes a week at Schweitzer Mountain Resort for two adults and includes lodging, lift tickets and ski equipment rental. For our customers who would prefer to stay in warmer climates, we also have the option for Tamarack to send our professional pilot to pick up their aircraft and return it home after the factory Active Winglet upgrade. So, whether you like to ski or stay by the beach, we think this offer has something for everyone. Installation here in Sandpoint by the factory experts can be completed in just over one week and is still sales tax exempt for non-residents.”
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.

About Tamarack Aerospace Group
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.
