Building on its growing active winglet base, Tamarack Aerospace is stepping up its marketing efforts with a demonstration day scheduled for November 13 at authorized installer Eagle Aviation in Columbia, South Carolina. The event will highlight so-equipped Cessna Citation CJ1 and CJ2+ jets and include demonstration flights for pre-registered attendees.
“Eagle was at the forefront of our independent installation network and has already completed several active winglet installations,” said Tamarack president Brian Cox. The company now has approvals for the winglets on most of the CJ family up through the CJ3+ (although modifications are underway for the CJ3/3+ program) and topped 75 installations by last month.
With multiple international certifications in hand, the Sandpoint, Idaho-based company has been building up a dealer network. Eagle was among the first named earlier this year.
“We’ve been very happy with the product quality, looks, and performance of the CitationJets that we’ve upgraded, and felt that an event where our customers and friends could experience this technology for themselves would be both productive and educational,” said Eagle Aviation’s Cary Friedman. The company cites numerous benefits from active winglet installation, including for range, maximum zero fuel weight, time to climb, climb gradients, single-engine climb performance, ride smoothing and stability, and LED navigation and anti-collision lighting.
