In response to the COVID-19 economic impact, Tamarack Aerospace has launched a temporary program to waive all installation fees for their Active Winglet installs on Cessna CitationJets. Tamarack says seven customers have now taken advantage of the $42,000 discount, which will be offered through June 30, 2020. The newest customers sales include two CJ’s, two CJ1’s, two CJ2’s, and one CJ3. Tamarack says one is a return customer and one is aPart 135 charter operator. Additionally there is one partner installation completed by Rose Aircraft Services (Mena, Ark.).
“We are proud to help our valued customers during this time of economic strain,” says Jacob Klinginsmith, president of Tamarack Aerospace. “Temporarily eliminating the $42,000 installation fee has allowed seven customers and counting to experience the groundbreaking benefits of our Active Winglet technology.” Tamarack says the continued support of Cessna CitationJet owners has helped the momentum this past spring, keeping sales services and supply chains operating. Tamarack Partners have also taken advantage of the discount as they navigate sales during an industry slowdown.
Tamarack believes the aerospace industry is learning difficult lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to evolve as the situation matures. One reality has become clear, according to the company – aviation technology needs to be safe, efficient, and sustainable. Tamarack says their Active Winglet technology substantially increases the capability for non-stop or fewer-stops, thereby reducing the need for public passenger contact during flights while allowing for many different travel routes.
The modification is an immediate sustainability solution, reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions by up to 33 percent, the company reports. “As customers begin returning to the skies, people are looking to the aviation industry to adopt more sustainable practices,” explains Klinginsmith, “Active Winglets are one way to achieve those goals.”
