Tamarack turns to Guernsey for Active Winglet installations
ASG chief Steve Page has described Tamarack Active Winglets as high quality products that are easy to install. Customers will be able to minimise downtime by combining an installation with other maintenance tasks.

Idaho, US-headquartered Tamarack Aerospace Group has approved Aircraft Servicing Guernsey Limited (ASG), based at Guernsey airport in the Channel Islands, as an authorised installer of its Atlas Active Winglets for Cessna CitationJet business aircraft.

ASG CEO Steve Page says: “We're excited to be an authorised installer for Tamarack's Active Winglets. It's a high quality product that is far easier to install than traditional passive winglets, because there is no structural reinforcement required in the wing, significantly reducing the duration and complexity of the installation.

“We have many CitationJet customers looking to enhance the performance and beauty of their jets, and we look forward to demonstrating this product to them. ASG is uniquely positioned in the VAT-free Channel Islands to offer this exciting upgrade to an aircraft that already represents remarkable capabilities and value."

Tamarack president Brian Cox adds: “ASG has been a preferred maintainer of business aircraft since 1990 and we are excited that customers in Europe can now bring their aircraft to this world-class facility for their Active Winglet upgrade. Due to the broad range of aircraft services that ASG offers, including avionics, engine servicing or required inspections, customers can accomplish an Active Winglet upgrade for their CitationJet at the same time that they are performing other work on the aircraft, which minimises overall installation downtime.”

Tamarack Active Winglets are designed to reduce time to climb and fuel burn, while increasing range and aircraft stability, without any structural reinforcement. The winglets have been approved by EASA, FAA, ANAC Brazil, DGAC Mexico and Transport Canada STCs for installation on the Cessna CJ, CJ1, CJ1+, M2, CJ2, CJ2+, CJ3 and CJ3+ business jets.
