1. Sustainability & fuel efficiency. They're the two biggest concerns in the aviation industry, and aircraft owners and manufacturers are seeking real solutions — available right now.
2. Increased Performance. The wing technology aftermarket is worth nearly 2 billion. Tamarack believes that its proven, certified, and patented SMARTWING™ technology is primed to disrupt the marketplace entirely with an advanced solution. Our system dynamically responds to changing loads and conditions for maximum aerodynamic efficiency and stability, providing 3 to 4 times the efficiency of other wing technologies.
3. Proven Technology. We believe that Tamarack’s performance-enhancing technology is one of the most dramatic, game-changing aviation sustainability solutions available right now as retrofit or forward fit. Tamarack SMARTWING™ technology has already significantly improved range, fuel savings, safety, and comfort for its international fleet of over 150 CitationJets. Tamarack’s military and civilian use SMARTWING™ for the King Air series is currently undergoing testing with growing interest by the U.S. Congress, NASA, ICAO, and NBAA. The application of Tamarack SMARTWING™ technology for the commercial aviation sector will be one of the key technologies allowing the industry to reach its carbon-neutral commitments by 2050.
Tamarack’s ground-breaking technologies provide truly transformative performance improvements that make them the most cutting-edge aftermarket modifications available today.
Aviation is responsible for 2%–3% of all carbon emissions. By 2050, the International Coalition for Sustainable Aviation estimates aviation could be responsible for up to 22% of the world’s total carbon budget. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has set a goal to reduce net aviation CO2 emissions by 50% before 2050.
Most green aviation technologies, like sustainable aviation fuel, aircraft electrification, and improved engines and airframes, only deliver incremental benefits and require entirely new fleets, making implementation years into the future and requiring an enormous economic investment.
For instance, imagine transforming every plane in a commercial fleet to a new fuel type and what this would entail. American Airlines, with the largest fleet, has nearly 1,000 aircraft. Each of those 1,000 aircraft would need an entirely new fuel system. Then, every airport would need new fuel lines, terminals, and so on, essentially altering the infrastructure of every city- no small task.
Historically, one way to boost wing efficiency was to increase the area of the wing, and add winglets, which allows the plane to fly more efficiently with less drag.
Make the wing longer, and it allows the plane to fly more efficiently with less drag. Winglets are another way to increase wingspan; however, when adding length and passive winglets to the plane, one mustn’t forget about that other pesky detail- weight. Too much weight in the wings might lead to compromises in the amount of cargo, passengers, etc. allowed in the plane, and could alter flight overall.
So, what makes Tamarack’s SMARTWING™ different from traditional wing technologies?
All four components work together to provide maximum aerodynamic efficiency, making this technology up to five times as efficient as passive winglets. It is fully automatic, requires no pilot action, and functions autonomously from other aircraft systems.
This leads to increased range of up to 33%, fuel savings, a safer and smoother ride for passengers, and added value to aircraft.
Our product is high margin and easily scalable as it can be retrofitted onto any existing aircraft, as well as installed in new production aircraft. We have already developed and certified the system for eight derivative models and have a growing fleet of 150.
Now we're ready to expand into the commercial and military sectors, which we believe will create greater potential for investors.
Tamarack SMARTWING™ technology is available now— providing a significant and measurable reduction in CO2 emissions to the current fleet, as well as a reduction in the use of fossil fuels.
Beyond the transformative environmental impact, emissions reduction technology to market the complement is fuel savings, which makes business sense!
The beauty of investing in Tamarack SMARTWING™ technology is the tremendous incentive for airlines and other aircraft operators to choose this technology for their own return on investment.
This is a technology that makes business sense today, and the environmental returns will pay dividends for generations.
At Tamarack Aerospace, we’ve created a groundbreaking technology that is quickly transforming the aviation industry. Our SMARTWING™ technology maximizes flight, increases aircraft efficiency, and decreases CO2 emissions - all while reducing fuel usage by up to 33% for military and commercial airframes.

"The Earthrounding team made Aiken one of their stops because they identified Tamarack’s technology as an important contributor to helping aviation meet its UN Sustainability Goals of 50% reduction in net carbon emissions by 2050 compared to 2005 levels. Aviation is estimated to be responsible for approximately 2-3% of global carbon emissions today. The Aiken Regional Airport is the home of Tamarack’s East Coast Transformation Center where CitationJets are modified with Tamarack’s Active Winglet technology.
Tamarack’s SMARTWING™ technology provides multiple performance and sustainability supporting benefits, including up to 33% reduced fuel usage in modified aircraft and the ability to reach optimum altitude without a step climb in under 30 minutes, while also reducing noise pollution. The technology allows for more non-stop missions and smoother rides than, for instance, other flat-wing CitationJets are capable of offering. The SMARTWING™ technology modifies an aircraft’s wingtips and features autonomous and almost instant predictive and reactive load alleviation."

"The mission sounded simple: James Benham needed to fly from his home base in Bryan, Texas, to San Diego, where he was scheduled to give a presentation the following day. Fortunately, Benham doesn’t have to rely on the airlines because he owns and pilots a CitationJet.
Traveling by general aviation isn’t always ideal, however, and there usually are constraints that could affect such a trip or even make it impossible to complete without spending extra time at the destination.
In the original CitationJet, there is no way Benham could make it nonstop from his home in Bryan to San Diego with safe fuel reserves, unless the prevailing winds shifted 180 degrees to blow east to west. And on this particular day, Benham had already spent a few hours flying friends back from a vacation in Colorado, dropping them off in Tyler, Texas, before returning to Coulter Field in Bryan.
Benham’s original plan was to stay overnight at his home, then depart the next day, with me joining him in Bryan for the trip to San Diego. This would have worked fine if the weather had cooperated, even if it required an intermediate stop for fuel, which would have been the case for a stock CitationJet..."

Cancel anytime before 48 hours before a rolling close or the offering end date.
How much can I invest?
With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
When will I receive my shares?
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
What will the return on my investment be?
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
Can I cancel my investment?
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
What is the difference between Regulation Crowdfunding and Regulation A+?
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
