During the performance, AirVenture attendees will be restricted from accessing certain areas of parked aircraft. These areas must also be free of items such as chairs, blankets, coolers, and other loose items. EASA has granted Supplemental Type Certificate approval to Tamarack Aerospace for its Atlas Active Winglets on the Cessna Citation M2 light jet. This brings the total number of Cessna models approved for Tamarack’s
