July 10, 2012, Fort Lauderdale, FL – The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) recently issued STC ST03958AT to Banyan Air Service based at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE) for the installation of a Honeywell Aspire 200LG Satcom system on Gulfstream models GII/GIII/GIV.
The Aspire 200LG system turns an aircraft into an Internet hot spot and enables pilots and passengers to use Wi-Fi enabled devices including, Android, Blackberry®, iPhone® and iPads to access a multitude of applications including email, Internet browsing, smart phone connectivity and voice communications.
“We are excited to provide Gulfstream operators with the latest in worldwide airborne connectivity” said Brian Wilson, Banyan’s Director of Avionics. “The flexibility and scalable architecture of the Aspire system combined with data acceleration and Wi-Fi allows versatility within our STC to meet the needs of our clients. Our launch customer is very satisfied with the system and we have already received many inquiries about this innovative product.”
The complete STC data package consists of the Aspire 200 LG SwiftBroadband Satcom system with optional CNX-200 Cabin Gateway with accelerator, augmented with a Honeywell Sky Connect dual-channel Iridium Satcom. By certifying both the Aspire 200’s standard router and the CNX-200 accelerator for Wi-Fi operation, Gulfstream operators can choose either router or install them both.
“The CNX-200 is also a very popular addition to Gulfstream operators upgrading their MCS-3000/4000/6000/7000 Satcoms to SwiftBroadband, “ says Wilson. “These customers can now use our STC as the basis to activate the CNX-200’s Wi-Fi capability.”
