(Sandpoint, Idaho) Tamarack is pleased to release the Aviation Sustainability Initiatives white paper. A unique document, the Aviation Sustainability Initiatives white paper outlines how Active Winglets and other fuel saving and sustainability technologies can partner to reach international climate change goals. The document also shines a spotlight on the current state of aviation and the environment, and why the aviation industry must act on climate change now while longer-term solutions are being developed. This white paper is being released today, in honor of Earth Day, during a time for the world and the aviation industry alike to recommit to a more sustainable future.

Another confirmation of Tamarack’s sustainability and dramatic fuel saving technology
(Sandpoint, Idaho) – Tamarack Aerospace Group is thrilled to announce that former NASA astronaut, commercial airline pilot and professor Dr. Byron K. Lichtenberg has concluded a detailed evaluation of Tamarack’s revolutionary Active Winglet technology, and has made the evaluation available to the public.
Overall, Dr. Lichtenberg concluded that “due to the synergies inherit in wingspan increase and winglets, plus an active load alleviation system, performance gains are notable. While the actual increases are dependent on the aircraft, mission, and flight profile, field experience has shown up to a 33 percent decrease in fuel burn in CitationJets. While the benefits for large turbojet aircraft will be in the 12 percent to 18 percent range, it is still considered significant.”
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.
Oxford, UK – Tamarack® Aerospace is thrilled to announce the first series of Active Winglet installations on three Cessna Citation Jets at the new Tamarack European Installation Centre based at the London-Oxford Airport, United Kingdom. These installations mark the beginning of the company’s long held expansion goals and signals yet another exciting phase of growth for Tamarack after increasing the number of service centres in the U.S. and expanding its headquarters facilities in Sandpoint, Idaho.

In response to the COVID-19 economic impact, Tamarack® Aerospace Group has launched a temporary program to waive all installation fees for their revolutionary Active Winglet installs on Cessna CitationJets.
According to Tamarack Aerospace President Jacob Klinginsmith, three new customers have signed up for the free installation usually priced at $42-thousand, and more than two dozen other prospective Cessna CJ jet customers have strong interest and made contact with the company. Tamarack has installed more than one-hundred Active Winglets in CJ’s.
