Middle East customer rides a JetWave as the SUMS add up
EAD Aerospace has delivered its first Honeywell JetWave STC for an A319 VIP project in partnership with a leading European MRO for an undisclosed final customer in the Middle East.
The brand new aircraft was outfitted with a bespoke VIP interior and some of the latest technologies, including the fully operational Honeywell JetWave Ka-band system.
The solution provided is based on EAD Aerospace’s Satcom Universal Mounting System (SUMS) solution, which is also being used by EAD Aerospace partners for other STC projects including the A330, A340 and B777 platforms. The installation makes it one of the first customers to use the Inmarsat GX Aviation network and the next generation of inflight connectivity
EAD is part of the Eclipse group which has a long history in providing turnkey airborne satcom solutions which combined with EAD Aerospace’s long history of providing connectivity related STCs proved invaluable in ensuring that all aspects of the first project were successfully delivered, the company said.
