I hope you enjoyed my recent introduction into maximizing climb specific range, which I consider one of the most important topics when discussing flight efficiency. In recognition of all the “numbers” folks out there, this article will continue to discuss a few performance topics very rarely considered: how to maximize your climb specific range based on winds, temps, and takeoff weight. Please take a look at this short video to hear more about Climb Specific Range from me as well.
I like to think from a pilot’s perspective when identifying what an aircraft needs, spending much of my time talking to owners and operators about achieving peak efficiency. As an aerospace engineer, I am an expert on flight loads, aerodynamics, and performance – I am a numbers guy through and through.
I love to innovate, so one of the best parts of my job is working with jet owners to get maximum performance out of their aircraft…
As we navigate the third quarter of one of the most unpredictable years in history, our revolutionary Active Winglet technology offers cost savings and a solid investment for Cessna CitationJets. The aircraft valuation guide Vref has always valued Tamarack Aerospace Active Winglets at 100% of their purchase price for Cessna CitationJets, which is still true today.
Traci Dugan, Director of Operations at Trego-Dugan Aviation, discusses the improved range and fuel efficiency of their aircraft after installing Tamarack Active Winglets in July (2020).
J. Wickham “Wick” Zimmerman has been flying for more than 30 years. His childhood dream was to get his pilot’s license and move to the beach to fly a banner plane up and down the shore all day advertising drink specials and beer.
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.
