Tamarack Aerospace announced the first series of Active Winglet installations on three Cessna Citation Jets at the new Tamarack European Installation Centre based at the London-Oxford Airport, United Kingdom. These installations mark the beginning of the company’s long held expansion goals and signals yet another exciting phase of growth for Tamarack after increasing the number of service centres in the U.S. and expanding its headquarters facilities in Sandpoint, Idaho.

“From the early days of Tamarack, I’ve had the dream of offering our high quality, customer-centric service to our growing fleet. Seeing this first installation come together in the new Tamarack European Installation Centre is fulfillment of that dream in part,” says Tamarack Aerospace Founder and CEO Nick Guida. “Keep an eye on us. We’re seeing more demand as word spreads about how the Active Winglet modification saves up to 33% of fuel usage, cuts down on noise pollution with shorter runways needs for takeoffs and landings and provides safer and smooth flight. So, we will have more to announce in the fall.”

Two sets of Active Winglets were purchased for install by Sovereign Business Jets. Tamarack has completed the first installation on a CJ2, with the second installation on a CJ1 due for completion in early November. The third set of Active Winglets were purchased by a private CJ1 owner, due for installation in November as well.

”SBJ is excited to undertake the first European Installation of Tamarack’s Active Winglets on our recently purchased  CJ2. With JMI’s expertise, the installation has gone smoothly,” says Barry Chalmers, Managing Director of Sovereign Business Jets.

A seven-to-ten day installation is a precedented norm for Tamarack business. Many customers, like SBJ, often opt for other services and upgrades which extend the time frame of the modification. “The performance benefits and the stylish looks of the winglets made this an easy decision for us. We now have a second aircraft - a CJ1 - lined up for installation,‘’ added Chalmers.

“We are glad to see that the Oxford facility is working in collaboration with existing Tamarack Authorized Dealers in Europe. In the process of strengthening our business, we are now able to offer the same high level of service to our European customers that those in the United States experience,” says Danny Hiner, Tamarack Chief Operating Officer.

“The team performed beautifully on this first installation; and now that we can incorporate some lessons learned, it’s clear that future installations will only take about a week which is a huge benefit to our customers who value the minimized down time,” says Sam Middleton, the Tamarack Sales Representative in Oxford.

This Tamarack European Installation Centre operates independently out of the Oxford Jet Maintenance International (JMI) facility.
