Cobham Satcom has announced two new Aviator 300 supplemental type certificate (STC) approvals and introduced the Aviator 200S, which features a new compact antenna.

The Aviator 300 received an FAA STC for installation on the Airbus A319, A320 and A321. The STC was developed by Avionics Support Group on an ACJ319 business jet. The company plans to add EASA and Chinese CAAC STCs for the Airbuses as well.

Honeywell BendixKing’s new AeroWave 100 satcom system, introduced yesterday at the Aircraft Electronics Association convention, offers 3G-like data speeds in a system designed for installation in light aircraft, from piston twins to turboprops and light jets. AeroWave is an Inmarsat L-band satcom that offers speeds of 150 to 200 kbps, and its price of $20,000 is about a third of the cost of Honeywell’s Aspire SwiftBroadband satcom (about 400 kbps).
