Aircell Unveils Fans-ready In-flight Communications System for Bizjets
Today Aircell unveiled the ST 4300, a global in-flight communications system for business aircraft that is expected to be eligible for Fans certification. The ST 4300 combines voice, narrowband data and cockpit datalink services into a single unit. Available with one, two or three Iridium voice/narrowband data channels, as well as a dedicated Iridium data channel, the system allows business aircraft operators to configure cabin and flight-deck communications to suit their specific needs and budgets. Once certified for Fans, the system will allow flight crews and air traffic controllers to exchange clearances, requests and position reporting via digital datalink.
