Aircell’s Aviator 300, powered by Thrane & Thrane, has been selected for 12 factory airframe programs, including those at Bombardier, Cessna, Hawker Beechcraft and Gulfstream. Aviator 300 provides global data connectivity for e-mail and light Internet service at speeds up to 332 kbps.

Aviator 300 allows crew and passengers to send and receive e-mail with attachments, surf the Web and access a corporate VPN, as well as use their personal Wi-Fi-enabled laptops, tablets, electronic flight bags and smartphones. They can also place and receive voice calls using integrated cabin handsets.

After-market certifications for the Aviator series have recently been granted for the King Air 200, Citation CJ1 and Bombardier Challengers. Addition certification programs are under way for the Falcon 2000EX, Falcon 2000LX, Embraer Legacy, Beechcraft King Air 350, Cessna Citation XLS, Gulfstream IV and DC-8.
