2019 Tamarack Partner of the Year Award
March 18, 2020. Tamarack Aerospace is happy to announce that the inaugural recipient of its Tamarack Partner of the Year Award was presented to Eagle Aviation at the March Citation Jet Pilots Association regional fly-in held in Charleston, SC.
Accepting the award for Eagle were company president, Lee Thomas and Cary Friedman of aircraft sales and acquisitions. Thomas said, “Eagle’s partnership with Tamarack has proven strong and profitable. To date we have sold nine sets of Active Winglets and we have installed eight at our facility in Columbia, SC.” To illustrate his point, Thomas said his team finished their latest installation on a CJ earlier this month. “The customer bundled his Active Winglet installation with new livery, interior and an avionics upgrade. The 525 owner reports loving the Active Winglets and the significant fuel savings they afford.”
Eagle Aviation, located at Columbia Metro Airport (KCAE), is a full-service operation, offering FBO services, paint, interior & avionics upgrades, and a flight school, aircraft sales, charter & management. “We like to say we’re a one-stop shop, conveniently located on the East Coast. And this year, we are celebrating our 53rd year of operation,” Thomas said.
Tamarack founder and CEO, Nick Guida said, “Lee and Cary, are great partners. Eagle’s technicians do outstanding work and we are proud to be associated with the entire organization. Tamarack’s patented Active Winglet technology delivers up to 33 percent fuel savings for the CJ and CJ1. There is no other technology available today that can save up to 33 percent fuel every flight, while improving safety and ride comfort.”
Tamarack currently has over 20 authorized sales and installation Partners located in the U.S. and internationally and continues to expand its network to better serve the needs of the business jet community.
