Jet Aviation St. Louis Develops WiFi STC for the Bombardier Global Express, Global Express XRS and Challenger 300 Series Aircraft

St. Louis, Mo. / January 24, 2012 – Jet Aviation St. Louis has developed a WiFi Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for Bombardier Challenger 300, Global Express and Global Express XRS series aircraft, providing customers internet access in their aircraft. The new STC joins existing WiFi STCs for Gulfstream V, Challenger 605, Learjet 40 and Learjet 45 aircraft.

WiFi coverage is now available for both domestic and international operations, providing full internet functionality in the aircraft. Among the internet-access systems included in the Global Express/XRS STC are Aircell GoGo, EMS CNX-200 and Honeywell CR-710 product lines, and the Challenger 300 STC covers Aircell GoGo, Thrane SBB and Lufthansa Nice Mate for iPod control of the CMS. Each system creates a certified WiFi hotspot in the cabin offering customers complete internet access in their aircraft.

“With all the advanced communications technology choices on the market today, it is now possible for a corporate aircraft to fully function as a second office,” said Skip Madsen, vice president, MRO operations at Jet Aviation St. Louis.
