A Cessna CitationJet equipped with Tamarack Aerospace’s active winglets made an unofficial record-breaking trip from Sandpoint, Idaho, to Westchester County Airport in White Plains, N.Y., on Tuesday night. The Tamarack CJ (N86LA) is on display at today’s NBAA Business Aviation Regional Forum at Westchester County Airport in White Plains. The nonstop 1,853-nm flight landed with reserves of 472 pounds after flying for six hours and 16 minutes.
Aviation Partners is readying its new blended split-tip Scimitar winglet for flight test, the company said today at the NBAA Convention. The new device adds a blended ventral fin and Scimitar tips to the existing blended winglet design and could increase performance by 40 percent over the original blended winglet design.
