With support from StandardAero’s Springfield, Ill. completion facility, Associated Air Center of Love Field, Texas, has won a supplemental type certificate (STC) for installation of an Aircell ATG 5000 wireless Internet package on a Boeing 757-200.

“In-flight connectivity is critical to manage the lightning-fast pace under which today’s global businesses operate,” said Associated v-p and general manager Troy Jonas.

The aircraft is owned by MLW Aviation and operated by Elan Express, the exclusive air transport provider of the NBA world champion Dallas Mavericks. Associated performed the original cabin completion in 2001 and has provided maintenance, repair and overhaul services on the airplane since then.
