Tamarack Aerospace Group marked a milestone this week with the 100th installation of its active winglets on a Cessna CitationJet at the company’s Sandpoint, Idaho headquarters. Company president Jacob Klinginsmith hailed the milestone as a demonstration of the company’s growth and leadership in winglet technology and aviation sustainability.
California National Guard pilot and business owner Larry McKoane, owner of the CitationJet, took delivery of the airplane following a 100th installation ceremony. “The reason we chose Tamarack winglets was primarily for performance improvements on the airplane that allowed us to expand our business capabilities throughout the West Coast,” said McKoane, president and CEO of Clawson Honda and Clawson Motorsports in Fresno. “We’re also looking forward to the increase in safety because if you fly into high-altitude airports in the summertime, the winglets are going to improve our safety margin substantially.”
The milestone comes as Tamarack works its way out of reorganization, which is expected early in the second quarter.
