International Communications Group Pursuing STC for Sora System with Landmark Aviation

They are working to obtain a STC from the FAA to install a version of the Sora advanced voice and data satellite communications system on Bombardier Challenger 600 series aircraft.

Sora gives the flight crew a global voice Satcom system that can serve as an alternative to a second High Frequency (HF) radio, a system that is compliant with the emerging requirements of the NextGen safety services. On transoceanic flights, a reliable communications channel can mean the difference between completing a trip or encountering a diversion or turn back.
