Honeywell’s AIS-2000 OneView multi-region satellite television receiver has received FAA certification in four business jets–the Gulfstream IV; Bombardier Global Express and Challenger 604; and Boeing Business Jet. The system provides worldwide television viewing in airspace above the U.S., Canada and Western Europe, where the tail-mounted antenna has provided good reception performance, according to Honeywell. The system relies on the DirecTV feed over the U.S., BellExpressVU over Canada and a variety of service providers in Europe. More regions will be added to the system’s capabilities this fall, said Honeywell, including the Middle East, Asia and Latin America.
