Tamarack Aerospace has appointed ACI Jet to its network of authorized service centers (ASC), enabling the San Luis Obispo, California MRO provider to offer sales and service of the Tamarack Active Winglet System for the Cessna CitationJet 525, 525A, and 525B series in all eight variants.

ACI Jet joins 11 other Tamarack ASCs in the U.S. and seven in countries that include Brazil, the Channel Islands, Sweden, Serbia, and the UK. Tamarack also has two transformation centers in Aiken, South Carolina, and Oxford, England.

“Tamarack Aerospace has proven their agility in creating a groundbreaking product that significantly tips the scales in favor of sustainability, all while greatly reducing downtime for the aircraft owner and installation and operational costs,” said ACI Jet senior v-p of aircraft maintenance David Jensen. “Owners can get equipped and get back to flying in record time, which is a goal we’ve upheld in our repair station from day one.”

According to Tamarack, more than 140 CitationJets have been modified with its Active Winglet system in the past five years.

Sandpoint, Idaho-based Tamarack also has established the Active Winglet Pilot Proficiency Course as part of the FAA’s Wings Pilot Proficiency Program and FAA Safety Team program. Included in the course is a brief review of the aerodynamics of wings; the Active Winglet system and its benefits, safety, and emergency procedures; and flying tips for maximizing performance with the system. Enrollment in the course is free.
