Tamarack Aerospace Group received additional EASA and FAA approvals for its active winglets on the Cessna Citation business jet line, with new supplemental type certificate (STC) authorizations for the C525A series including the CJ2 and CJ2+ aircraft. Tamarack already has approvals on the C525 and C525B CJ series.

This is our second STC approval on the CitationJet series this quarter,” said Nick Guida, founder of Tamarack Aerospace. “It shows how agile the Tamarack team has become in obtaining multiple sequential certifications. Regulatory approval of our latest STC amendment for the Citation CJ2 and CJ2+ proves what our existing CJ owners have known since their installs. Active winglets on the C525 and C525B, and now on the C525A, dramatically enhance the performance of the aircraft. With ATLAS you can climb faster, fly farther and burn less fuel.” The company says the benefits derived from the installation of its active winglets on the CJ2 include: 1,700-nm range at max continuous thrust with IFR reserves; max zero fuel weight increase of 400 lb. on CJ2+ and 800 lb. on the CJ2; direct climb to FL 450 in 30 min. or less; increased climb gradients; improved single-engine climb performance and stability; and LED exterior lighting.

Tamarack says its Sandpoint, Idaho, facility can complete the upgrade, including painting, in one week.
