Thrane & Thrane... Wi-Fi-Fli (SATCOM)

[SatNews] Thrane & Thrane has announced that its AVIATOR 200 SwiftBroadband solution has received...

...a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the system’s installation with in-flight Wi-Fi aboard Pilatus PC-12/45, PC-12/47 and PC-12/47E aircraft. The STC follows the successful installation and testing of the AVIATOR 200, which was carried out by Thrane & Thrane partner Pro Star Aviation and includes the system’s use for Wi-Fi.

Thrane & Thrane’s AVIATOR 200 is a compact, lightweight system that offers reliable, affordable connectivity to provide users with a range of services including data, video and voice. With built-in Wi-Fi capability, the AVIATOR 200 allows aircraft operators to offer wireless connectivity on-board, to support the use of Wi-Fi enabled devices such as laptops, tablets and smart phones. Thrane & Thrane’s innovative AVIATOR 200 is the smallest and lightest system in its SwiftBroadband product portfolio and uses Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband 200 service. AVIATOR 200 simultaneously provides data speeds up to 200 Kbps and a single AMBE 2 channel for voice calls, providing a complete airborne communications solution previously unavailable to aircraft below a certain size.
