Duncan Aviation Completes Two Tamarack ATLAS Winglet Installations
Duncan Aviation completes its first two Tamarack Aerospace ATLAS Winglet installations on Cessna CitationJet aircraft.
A CJ1, at Duncan Aviation for airframe inspections, paint and modifications as well as the Tamarack Aerospace Active Winglet installation, was delivered last week. The company also completed winglet installation on a CJ3 aircraft in for a ProLine Fusion Flight Deck upgrade.
In April, Duncan Aviation was named an authorized installer of the ATLAS Active Winglet, adding Tamarack’s winglets to the list of winglet solutions available through Duncan Aviation. Over the last few years, Duncan Aviation has installed hundreds of winglets for Hawkers, Falcons and other airframes.
Tamarack Active Winglets are the only aerodynamic technology on the market today that can reduce time-to-climb and fuel burn while increasing range and aircraft stability, without any structural reinforcement, yielding significant time- and cost-savings. Tamarack Active Winglets are approved via EASA, FAA, ANAC and Transport Canada supplemental type certificate (STC) for installation on the Cessna CJ, CJ1, CJ1+, M2, CJ2, CJ2+, CJ3 and CJ3+ business jets.
The operational benefits that owners will see with an Active Winglet-equipped aircraft are:
- increased range
- maximum zero fuel weight increase
- reduced time to climb to cruise altitude
- increased climb gradients
- improved single-engine climb performance
- ride-smoothing and stability.
