Winglets are typically added to aircraft to improve performance and efficiency, but they change the aerodynamic load on an airplane’s wing, requiring additional internal structural reinforcements.

Tamarack Aerospace has developed an active winglet system that includes a wingtip extension and winglet, and an active load-alleviation system that counteracts gust and maneuver loads, negating the need for the typical structural reinforcement of the wing.

Nextant Flies Fusion-equipped Challenger 604


Nextant Aerospace has completed the first flight of a Bombardier Challenger 604 outfitted with a Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion retrofit cockpit with touchscreen displays, the company said today. The avionics retrofit is one of the components of its remanufactured 604XT, which was announced in May at EBACE. However, Nextant is also offering the retrofit as a standalone product for Challenger 604 operators and announced the launch customer for the Fusion upgrade last week.

The Fusion-equipped 604 has completed two flight segments and will continue with flight-test protocols for the remainder of this week before the test article is flown to the NBAA Convention in Las Vegas next month for the first public showing of the new cockpit. The company also plans to announce more details about the 604XT program at the show.

“The cockpit performed flawlessly,” said Nextant vice president of flight operations Nathan Marker. “The Pro Line Fusion cockpit not only addresses pending regulatory and obsolescence requirements that the Challenger is facing, but it also provides the flight crew with the absolute latest in forward-fit technology. The touch-interactive technology is very intuitive and the overall integration provides exceptional situational awareness for the flight crew.”
