AirCell’s Axxess satellite communications system has gained European certification aboard a Cessna Citation 650. The Axxess system includes two Iridium satcom channels for making voice calls and transmitting low-rate data in flight. The unit’s capabilities can be expanded to four Iridium channels as well as a single Inmarsat satcom channel allowing Internet access through the Swift64 aero data service. AirCell said Axxess systems are awaiting European certification for installation in other business aircraft types.
