Greenwich AeroGroup is in the process of forming a dealer network for installation and certification of LiveAero systems.
LiveAero is a development of LiveTV of Melbourne, Fla. According to the company, it is the only fixed-wing and rotorcraft data broadband solution that works everywhere in the world, including remote oceanic and polar regions, for passengers requiring smartphone, tablet or laptop connectivity.
Based on the Iridium OpenPort broadband technology, the system has Wi-Fi enabled, bi-directional data speeds up to 134 kbps. But with network optimization, speeds of up to 300 kbps are possible. The system also includes three separate voice lines for calls placed anywhere in the world, whether the aircraft is in the air or on the ground.
To date, dealers include Greenwich AeroGroup’s Atlantic Aero in Greensboro, N.C.; Summit Aviation in Middletown, Del.; and Western Aircraft in Boise, Idaho; Banyan Air Service in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Spirit Avionics in Columbus, Ohio; and Temple Electronics in Houston. Texas Jet Aviation has signed on for its locations in Basel, Switzerland, Dubai and Singapore.
