EBACE: AMAC heads to True North to give BBJ747-8 connectivity

Posted 18 May 2015 · Add Comment

TrueNorth Avionics announced today at EBACE that AMAC Aerospace has installed the company's Simphonē Mobile GSM System for a Middle Eastern head of state Boeing 747-8I aircraft completion.

Simphonē Mobile GSM is a private GSM system that has been specifically designed for private and business jet operators. Passengers and crew can board the plane and use their own personal phones to text and talk without any additional configuration, apps or forwarding service.

“When we’re on the go, we rely on our mobile phones to keep in touch,” said TrueNorth CEO Mark van Berkel. “Having to fly shouldn’t be an exception, which is why we developed Simphonē Mobile GSM. Now when you fly on a private aircraft you never have to be out of touch because people can reach you on your mobile phone. Our partnership with AMAC is very important to our business, and we are thrilled that they have selected our private GSM Solution for this completion. Since the company’s founding AMAC has led the industry in choosing innovative solutions that add value to the aircraft owner’s inflight experience.”
Simphonē Mobile GSM is compatible with all quad-band phones and supports Wi-Fi enabled smartphones. The system offers authentic GSM services, including text and talk and has more than 300 global roaming partners. Specifically designed for long-range VIP private aircraft, Simphonē Mobile GSM works just like mobile service on the ground. Satcom Direct and Satcom1 are official service partners.
“Installing a system specifically geared towards business and VIP private aviation was an important consideration for us, and our clients,” said Bernd Schramm, AMAC Aerospace Group Chief Operating Officer. “It’s simple, people want to stay in touch, and they are used to their own phones with their own contact lists. They don’t have time to load additional apps; they just want to make a call like they would anywhere else. The TrueNorth GSM system has allowed us to bring this simplicity to our customers.”
