SkyAlps, an Italian airline based in Belzano, signed a Letter of Intent with Tamarack Aerospace Group to partner in developing the world’s most efficient regional aircraft. SkyAlps intends to make a global impact on aviation sustainably by offering a highly modified De Havilland Canada Dash 8-400 regional aircraft to the world.
The aircraft modifications will feature significant emissions reductions. In addition to SkyAlps and Tamarack, other noteworthy aviation-related companies will have their technology and products integrated into the Q400.
The aircraft will be upgraded with Tamarack’s Eco-SMARTWING technology, improving the performance and safety of SkyAlps’ modified fleet while offering significantly reduced emissions, noise pollution reduction, and meaningful fuel savings. The winglets in the picture above are 14 feet in length.
The SkyAlps’ Q400 fleet will be upgraded with new cockpit avionics offering weight savings and operational efficiencies for better fuel savings using Sustainable Aviation Fuel when available and employing sustainable and the most efficient route planning. Further, the aircraft will be upgraded with Tamarack’s Eco-SMARTWING technology reducing fuel consumption by as much as three times as outdated traditional winglets in use now.
New Q400 aircraft interiors feature weight savings and unsurpassed passenger comfort. The combined capabilities of these upgrades offer significant sustainability benefits to a wide range of aviation operators. SkyAlps is proud to be equipping its growing fleet and offering other airlines the sustainable upgraded package.
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.
