You have read in several places about the reaction to the now infamous words “No new airplanes”. Taking that statement at face value, it is reasonable to consider that the duopoly as a whole is less likely to do anything new for a while. This means that operators are likely to recover from the pandemic by focusing on extracting the highest value from the equipment they have. Backlogs are long and money is tight, after all.
The airline industry embraced winglets for fuel savings. Whether an aircraft flew a profile that optimized the value or not. So it was with growing interest that we took a look at Tamarack Aerospace Group, inventors of the “active winglet”. They have a great story to tell and the timing is right. We spoke company Jacob Klinginsmith, president of Tamarack.
Co-Founder AirInsight. My previous life includes stints at Shell South Africa, CIC Research, and PA Consulting. Got bitten by the aviation bug and ended up an Avgeek. Then the data bug got me, making me a curious Avgeek seeking data-driven logic. Also, I appreciate conversations with smart people from whom I learn so much. Summary: I am very fortunate to work with and converse with great people.
