SMARTWING™ Technology

Tamarack SMARTWING™ technology is rapidly transforming the future of aviation performance and sustainability.

SMARTWING™ Technology

Wing efficiency is all about aspect ratio. Longer wings are more efficient- they increase lift and reduce drag. Passive winglets have been used for many years; however, they have major drawbacks, like added wing structure and weight. SMARTWING™ technology is dramatically different, and incorporates 3 major elements that when combined, help achieve new levels of aircraft performance, efficiency, and sustainability.

So, What Makes it SMART?

Tamarack SMARTWING™ Technology is the ultimate aviation upgrade — with advanced features that are rapidly changing the future of aerospace. Comprised of a light-weight wing extension, a composite winglet, and the autonomous ATLAS® load alleviation system. Uncompromised aerodynamically, SMARTWING™ technology helps to increase range, reduce fuel consumption, and maximize climb performance.

Load Alleviation

Tamarack's patented SMARTWING™ Technology dynamically responds to changing load conditions to significantly amplify efficiency, stability, and performance.

The key is our ATLAS® load alleviation technology, which allows the system to aerodynamically “turn off” the winglet in specific conditions, eliminating additional loads.

Automated Technology

Using load sensors and a camber surface that can respond in fractions of a second, Tamarack Active Winglets automatically control wing bending during turbulence and high events. The Active Winglet is fully automatic, requires no pilot action, and functions autonomously from other aircraft systems. The result is peak efficiency – without the need to add additional wing structure – resulting in no additional weight and a simpler, quicker installation.


How Can SMARTWING™ Technology Save Fuel?

Real-life data from our fleet of over 150 aircraft tells the story. 

For example, a flat wing Cessna CJ/CJ1 aircraft that could fly three hours nonstop prior to installing Active Winglets can now fly four hours nonstop on the same fuel with Active Winglets. Another way to measure the fuel savings associated with Active Winglets is with range.  A flat wing aircraft is generally a 900 nautical miles aircraft. However, equipped with Active winglets, the same flatwing aircraft can fly at least 1,200 nautical miles.

Elevate Your Experience

Tamarack Active Winglets will open a new world of possibilities for you and your aircraft. Cessna CJ aircraft fitted with Active Winglets reach cruising altitude in under 30 minutes and can soar above less advanced jets to reach an altitude between 41,000 and 45,000 feet.

With significant fuel savings, the range of your flight missions is increased with unparalleled flight stability and ride smoothing. Active Winglets also add value to your aircraft with a 100% resale value (according to VREF data).
