Thrane & Thrane Flying High With The AVIATOR

[SatNews] While some areas of the economy are struggling the satellite realm is resilient, evidenced by the recent success of Thrane & Thrane. This satellite communications equipment manufacturer has furthered its aeronautical dealer network within the U.S. and Canada with the appointment of four new dealers. Thrane & Thrane's dealer network expansion supports demand for its extensive range of satellite communications solutions, including its AVIATOR SwiftBroadband product range.

"The introduction of Inmarsat SwiftBroadband has been a major step forward for aeronautical satellite communications and has made broadband internet available to a significantly wider range of aircraft. The expansion of our U.S. aero dealer network supports our AVIATOR SwiftBroadband product range, ensuring availability of new and current systems, as well as optimizing customer service and support. Our new dealers have demonstrated exceptional knowledge and experience of aeronautical satellite communications and we are looking forward to working with them in what is an exciting time for the industry," comments Andy Beers, Director of Aeronautical Sales for the Americas.

With key responsibility for providing sales and after-sales services including product installation and support, the four new dealers appointed by Thrane & Thrane are:
  • Field Aviation, Mississauga, ON
  • Foxtronics, Dallas, TX
  • Mid-Canada Mod Center, Malton, ON
  • Western Aircraft, Boise, ID

Inline with the launch of its new AVIATOR 200 SwiftBroadband solution, Thrane & Thrane introduced the AVIATOR brand across its SwiftBroadband product portfolio in April 2010. The existing Aero-SB Lite offering became the Thrane & Thrane AVIATOR 300 with Intermediate Gain Antenna (IGA) and the AVIATOR 350 with High Gain Antenna (HGA), while the flagship Aero-SB+ became the AVIATOR 700. AVIATOR, which has quickly become a brand name synonymous with the power of Inmarsat SwiftBroadband and innovative SwiftBroadband terminal technology for business and commercial aircraft communication, now covers Thrane & Thrane's entire SwiftBroadband product portfolio.
