Duncan Aviation Receives In-Flight Wi-Fi STC for Thane and Thrane-Equipped Falcon 2000s and 2000EXs

LINCOLN, NEB — Duncan Aviation is pleased to announce that it recently received a Supplemental Type Certification (STC) for in-flight Wi-Fi operations in Falcon 2000 and 2000EX aircraft equipped with Thrane and Thrane.  

The certification allows SwiftBroadband aircraft Wi-Fi service in the cabin by upgrading the Thrane and Thrane Swift 64 Aero HSD+ Satellite Communication System to the SwiftBroadband Aviation 700 Satellite Communication System. The SwiftBroadband service provides high-speed in-flight internet connectivity, allowing passengers to use their iPads®, laptops, BlackBerrys, iPhones® and other Wi-Fi devices at connection speeds that provide an experience similar to that of ground-based Wi-Fi connections.

Thrane & Thrane’s SwiftBroadband System (Aviator 700) comes with four channels of global voice, one flight deck data link and up to two channels for internet (data). Other features of the system are:
·        VoIP connectivity
·        Low-cost voice
·        Built-in router to support multiple wired or wireless (Wi-Fi) laptops and/or PDA devices
·        Built in PBX to support multiple handsets
·        ISDN connectivity (video conferencing)
