Duncan Aviation Certifies Wi-Fi Operations for Gulfstream V

LINCOLN, NEB. — Duncan Aviation is pleased to announce its recent installation for Wi-Fi operations in a Gulfstream V. The installation was completed for TWC Aviation at Duncan Aviation’s avionics satellite facility in Van Nuys, Calif.

The Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for Wi-Fi operations was initially received earlier this year for the Gulstream IV/IVsp aircraft. The modification of the existing STC to include the Gulfstream V model was completed under Duncan Aviation’s STC and Major Repair and Alteration (MRA) Organization Designation Authorization (ODA). In addition to the Gulfstream V installation, TWC Aviation also had Wi-Fi operations installed in their Gulfstream IV aircraft.

“We would like to thank the Van Nuys satellite shop, avionics sales team in Battle Creek and all involved with this installation,” says Javier Cervantes of TWC Aviation. “The STC approval for the Wi-Fi installation on both the GIV and GV aircraft allows TWC Aviation to further enhance our ability to offer the latest cabin technology to our aircraft owners and charter clients.”

This certification provides more choices for Gulfstream operators who are looking to upgrade to broadband operation to include Wi-Fi access in the cabin for Aircell’s Gogo Biz™ Inflight Internet service. Aircell’s system provides high-speed inflight connectivity, allowing passengers to use their Wi-Fi devices at connection speeds of 1-3 Mbps.

Duncan Aviation is the industry leader in Wi-Fi equipment installations and holds STCs for Wi-Fi operation in a wide variety of business aircraft models, including Hawker 800XP / 850XP, and 900XP, the Falcon 2000, 2000EX EASy and 900EX EASy, the Cessna 680, the Challenger 300, the Citation 750 and now both the Gulfstream IV / IVsp and Gulstream V.
