WEATHER PLAYED A BIG PART IN DRAMATIC FLY-OFF BETWEEN TAMARACK ACTIVE WINGLETS AND A FLAT-WING CESSNA
Tamarack CEO Nick Guida is proud of how the Active Winglets performed during the fly-off. “This was the first fly-off comparing an Active Winglet aircraft and a flat-wing aircraft operating under the same conditions,” he says. ”Active Winglet mods can result in up to 33% fuel savings, depending on weather conditions and other variables. Comparing these two flights, we saw about a 30% more efficient flight profile in terms of fuel consumption. As we saw yesterday, the Active Winglet competitor was unable to make the east coast trip without a stop, we couldn’t plan it safely. The Active Winglet transformed CitationJet (N44VS) was able to complete the trip without a fuel stop.”
And they are off! Today, Tamarack Aerospace is thrilled to kick off the highly anticipated Fly-Off between an unmodified CitationJet and a Tamarack-transformed CitationJet. This event is a real-world comparison between Tamarack Active Winglet performance on a Cessna CitationJet (N44VS), and a “flat-wing” CitationJet without Active Winglets (N741CC). The fly-off is scheduled to commence on Tuesday, January 26, 2021 from Portland, Maine (PWM) to West Palm Beach, Florida (PBI). The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) is documenting this weather-permitting event, with multimedia journalists aboard both aircraft. The National Aeronautic Association (NAA) will document the race for the potential setting of a record speed between this city pair in for this type of aircraft.
