In the next few weeks, customers will be able to experience – first hand – the performance improvements of the Cessna Citation equipped with Tamarack's Active Winglets, on a tour of four Textron service centers in Europe.

The modified CJ1 will be visiting Dusseldorf on 31st May; Paris on 1st June; Valencia on 2nd June; and Doncaster on 3rd June. At each venue the aircraft will be available for inspection and demonstration flights.

ATLAS™ Active Winglet inventor Nick Guida will be on hand to demonstrate the aircraft's new capabilities and to brief customers on the value proposition of this exciting new product. On the straight CJ, the wing extension and winglets reduce fuel burn from 135gph to 100gph, and allow the aircraft to climb directly to 41,000ft in around 30 minutes or less on only 550lb of fuel. The handling qualities are also improved, with most pilots who have flown the aircraft claiming that it has a more 'rock solid feel.'

Nick Guida states, "I am really looking forward to demonstrating the aircraft to customers, who, I'm sure, will be impressed with the reduction in fuel burn – particularly in the ascent phase. I also want pilots to try maneuvering the aircraft at altitude, including rudder kicks, to see just how stable it is with our winglets installed."

ATLAS™ Active Winglets are certified in Europe for the CJ, CJ1 and CJ1+, with the M2 to be approved in the next few weeks. FAA validation of the EASA STC is expected this summer.

Customers should contact one of the aforementioned Cessna Textron service centres for bookings and more information.
