A Cessna Citation M2 Gen2 light jet is the first of its type to get a Tamarack Aerospace Group active winglet upgrade, the Sandpoint, Idaho-based company announced today.
The FAA- and EASA-certified upgrade provides for improved takeoff limits in high altitude and high-temperature conditions, according to Tamarack. Also, the upgrade provides improved fuel reserves, high-altitude stability, as well as safety of stability on landing and climb performance, the company added.
“We’re thrilled to work with the most recent Gen2 models as well going forward,” said Tamarack president Jacob Klinginsmith. “This is an outstanding aircraft and we’re proud to serve our customers by adding some performance and offering another level of safety for their families or in their charter operations.”
Tamarack initially received FAA certification for active winglets on the M2 in 2015. The M2 Gen2 is the latest variant of the CE525 series, which includes the Citation CJ, CJ1, CJ1+, and M2. The company’s winglets are on several other Citation models, totaling more than 160 Citation twinjets.
