CONAL Brazil Adds Tamarack Aerospace Active Winglet Installation Approval

Active Winglets Upgrade For Citations Now Available At Sorocaba Airport Near Sao Paulo, Brazil

Tamarack Aerospace Group has approved Construtora Nacional de Avioes Ltda (CONAL) as an authorized installer of its ATLAS Active Winglets for the Cessna Citation business jet line.

"CONAL has been a preferred maintainer of business aircraft since 1962 and we are excited that customers in Brazil can now bring their aircraft to this world-class facility for their Active Winglet upgrade," said Brian Cox, President of Tamarack Aerospace. "Due to the broad range of aircraft services that CONAL offers, including avionics, paint, interior or required inspections, customers can accomplish an Active Winglet upgrade for their CitationJet at the same time that they are performing an engine overhaul or a flight deck upgrade, which minimizes overall installation downtime."

"We’re excited to now be an authorized 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," said Patrick Negrao, Director of Sales for CONAL. "That significantly reduces the duration and complexity of the installation. We have many CitationJet customers looking to increase the beauty and performance of their jets, and we look forward to demonstrating this product to them."

Tamarack Active Winglets are the only aerodynamic technology on the market today that can reduce time to climb and fuel burn, while increasing range and aircraft stability, without any structural reinforcement, yielding significant time and cost savings, according to the company. Tamarack Active Winglets are approved via EASA, FAA, ANAC Brazil, DGAC Mexico and Transport Canada Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for installation on the Cessna CJ, CJ1, CJ1+, M2, CJ2, CJ2+, CJ3 and CJ3+ business jets.

The operational benefits that owners will typically see with an Active Winglet equipped aircraft are:

  • Maximum Zero Fuel Weight increase.
  • Reduced time to climb to cruise altitude.
  • Significant increase in range at slightly reduced speeds
  • Enhanced climb gradient and OEI performance.
  • Improved hot/high performance.
  • Ride smoothing and stability.
  • Upgraded LED navigation & anti-collision lighting.
  • Ramp appeal and aircraft resale value.
