Tamarack Aerospace has approved Signature TechnicAir in Bournemouth, UK, as an authorized installer of its Cessna Citation Atlas Active Winglets. The winglet system, which reduces time to climb and fuel burn while increasing range and stability, consists of a wing tip extension, highly tuned winglet, and load-alleviation technology.
“It’s exciting that customers can now bring their aircraft to this world-class maintainer for their active winglet upgrade. Many owners will prefer to combine their active winglet upgrade with avionics or engine work, so this is a win-win for our European customers. At the same time that they are performing an engine overhaul or a flight deck upgrade, Signature TechnicAir can be working on the Atlas installation, which minimizes overall installation downtime,” said Brian Cox, president of Tamarack Aerospace.
Signature TechnicAir is co-located with Signature Flight Support at 17 U.S. airports and three UK airports. “We’re excited to now have our Bournemouth team be an authorized installer for Tamarack’s active winglets. It’s a high-quality kit that is far easier to install than traditional passive winglets because there is no structural reinforcement required in the wing. The performance benefits on the CJ series are a good match for the needs of our CitationJet customer base,” said Randy Deal, director of MRO sales for Signature TechnicAir.
