Tamarack Aerospace has become the newest member of the ICAO Global Coalition for Sustainable Aviation. The coalition is a forum of stakeholders that aims to facilitate the development of new ideas and accelerate the implementation of solutions that will further reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Other notable members of the Coalition include Airbus and Archer.
“Climate change is one of the biggest threats our globe faces, and the aviation industry must step up and do its part to embrace more sustainable practices. We are looking forward to collaborating with other members of the ICAO Global Coalition for Sustainable Aviation. Together, there is nothing our industry cannot accomplish,” says Tamarack CEO and co-founder Nick Guida.
Tamarack Active Winglets consist of a wing extension, a vertical winglet for some aircraft and an autonomous load alleviation system. The technology features instantaneous adjustment to turbulence, providing smoother and safer flights, quicker climbs, allowance for shorter runways, fewer stops and up to 33 per cent reduced fuel use. Active Winglets modifications are featured on more than 140 CitationJets today, and are being considered for other aircraft including single-aisle commercial, freighter and military aircraft.
