Duncan Aviation Completes Two More Aircell Wi-Fi STCs
October 18, 2010
LINCOLN, NEB. — Duncan Aviation is pleased to announce that it recently completed two more Supplemental Type Certifications (STCs) for the installation of Aircell’s Cabin Telecommunication Router, which provides Wi-Fi access in the cabin for Gogo Biz™ Inflight Internet service. The installation in a Falcon 900EX EASy is an industry first. The other installation was completed for a Cessna 680.
Aircell’s Gogo Biz Inflight Internet service provides high-speed inflight connectivity in the cabin, allowing passengers to use their laptops, BlackBerrys, iPhones and other Wi-Fi devices at connection speeds of 1-3 Mbps, providing an experience similar to that of ground-based Wi-Fi connections.
The installed system consists of an aircraft certified High Speed Data (HSD) unit, wireless Router and two belly-mounted antennas. The STC was certified under Duncan Aviation’s Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) and Major Repair and Alterations (MRA) Organization Designation Authorization (ODA).
"We now have FAA Certified Wi-Fi solutions for four business aircraft models, the Falcon 900EX EASy, the Cessna 680, the Challenger 300 and the Citation 750," said Steve Elofson, Manager of Avionics Installations Sales for Duncan Aviation. "We expect many more operators will be upgrading to Gogo Biz with Wi-Fi to make the most productive use of their time in the air. In fact, we are planning for two additional Aircell High Speed Internet Wi-Fi certifications before the end of this year for Falcon 2000/2000EX and Hawker 800XP models."
