Jet Aviation has received a European supplemental type certificate (STC) to install Aircell’s Aviator 200 system on the Dassault Falcon 2000LX jet. The Aviator 200 enables near-global email and voice capabilities via Inmarsat’s satellite-based SwiftBroadband service powered by Thrane & Thrane. A complete package costs $60,000, including installation.
As the installer, Jet Aviation is making the STC available for a nominal fee, and it is applicable to other Falcon 2000 models. In addition, the simplified installation requirements will make it an economic connectivity solution for operation in multiple world regions, John Wade, Aircell’s executive vice president and general manager, explained.
