Historic Fly-Off Between Citationjets: Tamarack Active Winglets Versus Flat-Wing Cessna

Today, Tamarack Aerospace has kicked off the highly anticipated Fly-Off between an unmodified CitationJet and a Tamarack-transformed CitationJet. This event is a real-world comparison between Tamarack Active Winglet performance on a Cessna CitationJet (N44VS), and a “flat-wing” CitationJet without Active Winglets (N741CC).

The fly-off is scheduled to commence on Tuesday, January 26, 2021 from Portland, Maine (PWM) to West Palm Beach, Florida (PBI). The Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) is documenting this weather-permitting event, with multimedia journalists aboard both aircraft. The National Aeronautic Association (NAA) will document the race for the potential setting of a record speed between this city pair in for this type of aircraft.
