Because the airplane with Tamarack’s winglets can get to altitude much more quickly, the fuel burn decreases significantly, which in turn leads to a reduction in the required fuel load. As a result, the payload capabilities increase as well. Through extensive flight testing, Tamarack has realized a 15 to 25 percent decrease in fuel burn. After two solid hours of flying, which included the climb to FL 410, we had burned a total of 1,200 pounds of fuel. Guida once set a record when he flew the CJ for six hours and 16 minutes, covering 1,853 nm. Another benefit, says Guida, is an increase in the service life of the airplane as the stresses on the airframe are reduced.
