Cleveland Hopkins International Airport-based Constant Aviation has completed an STC for Aircell’s Gogo Biz in-flight Internet and Wi-Fi system in the Phenom 300. It is the first such approval for the Phenom 300 and includes a satellite phone.

“To date we have completed approximately 40 installations of Aircell Gogo Biz, and six of them are on Phenom 300s. We have also made significant strides in the installation of cabin and cockpit upgrades on the Phenom 300. We have installed such things as synthetic vision system, satellite weather displays, in-flight phones, cabin in-flight entertainment systems, surround-sound speaker systems, iPod/iPad docking stations and cabin controller systems,” said Stephen Maiden, president of Constant Aviation.

The MRO has also completed STCs for the installation of the system in the Gulfstream IV, Legacy 600, EMB-135 Shuttle and the EMB-135LR. Currently the STCs for the Citation X, Hawker 800A/XP/850XP/900XP, Beechjet 400A/XP and the 737-based BBJ are in the final stages of gaining FAA approval.
