SANDPOINT, ID – Tamarack Aerospace Group, Inc. announced today the addition of ACI Jet of San Luis Obispo, California to its network of Tamarack Authorized Service Center Partners. The Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul (MRO) centers offer sales and service of the Tamarack Active Winglet System for the Citation Jet 525, 525A, and 525B series in all eight variants.
This new Authorized Service Center joins 11 others in the United States, and seven in countries including Brazil, the Channel Islands, Sweden, Serbia, and The United Kingdom. In addition to the now 19 Authorized Service Centers, Tamarack has two Transformation Centers in Aiken, South Carolina and Oxford, England, respectively.
“Tamarack continues to grow, with concrete plans for long-term expansion involving many different kinds of airframes, from business jets, to commercial single aisle aircraft, military planes, and large freight carriers,” shares Tamarack Founder and CEO, Nick Guida. “Adding ACI Jet to our Authorized Service Center Network fits perfectly with our plans, and we are thrilled to welcome them to the Tamarack family. We are a global operation, helping customers from the California coast to the UK, and we are just getting started.”
Headquartered on California’s Central Coast, ACI Jet is a recognized leader in private aviation services. In addition to nose-to-tail aircraft maintenance and avionics sales, installation and support, ACI Jet’s aviation ecosystem includes aircraft ground support services at its three full-service FBOs and aircraft management and charter services.
“It became apparent very quickly as we began exploring an expanded partnership with Tamarack Aerospace that their singular focus, their passion, was customer experience,” noted John W. Tucker, ACI Jet’s Director of Marketing. “That’s when we knew there was symmetry here, and that by becoming part of their support network we could not only reinforce that reputation, but expand upon it.”
David Jensen, ACI Jet’s Senior Vice President of Aircraft Maintenance, continued, “there’s a word that we use in the shop almost daily: Agility. Tamarack Aerospace has proven their agility in creating a groundbreaking product that significantly tips the scales in favor of sustainability, all while greatly reducing downtime for the aircraft owner and installation and operational costs. Owners can get equipped and get back to flying in record time, which is a goal we’ve upheld in our Repair Station from day one.”
Tamarack has modified over 140 Cessna CitationJets during the last five years, and both owners and operators alike are thrilled with Active Winglet technology. The system provides multiple performance benefits, including smoother rides and the ability to reach altitude in under 30 minutes. In addition, Active WInglets allow aircraft to land at slower speeds for safer landings on shorter runways. Unlike the outdated passive winglet offerings on other platforms, which only offer about 4% fuel savings, Active Winglets instantly and automatically adjust to turbulence, leveraging patented load alleviation and sustainability technology to reduce fuel usage up to 33%.
About Tamarack Aerospace
Tamarack Aerospace Group has revolutionized aftermarket winglets with its Active Winglet technology. Until now, winglets have typically only delivered marginal performance benefits – but Active Winglets deliver double-digit fuel savings, payload increase, significant range increase, outstanding climb performance, ride smoothing, increased structural life, and increased safety and stability. Active Winglets are more than an upgrade – they are a total transformation.
Tamarack Active Winglet technology increases a wing’s aspect ratio without increasing the aircraft’s structural weight, making it the most cutting-edge next-generation winglet available. The ground-breaking technology provides a truly transformative performance. Since structural reinforcement is not required, Active Winglets are lightweight, quick, and easy to install.
