Arinc and partner SES Americom have announced plans to expand the
Integrated Digital Enhanced Network
Jeppesen and Arinc Direct are pooling their resources to give corporate aviation customers the ability to uplink flight plans directly to an airplane’s flight management system. The service, available in the air or on the ground, eliminates the need for pilots to type flight plans into the FMS, cutting workload and reducing the risk of errors.
Arinc Direct has introduced an online tool called the Virtual Fuel Desk to help its business aviation customers boost their fuel purchasing power. The program provides comparative pricing from multiple fuel suppliers at virtually all major U.S. and Canadian airports and FBOs frequently used by business aviation.
Arinc and Jeppesen last month announced an alliance that will integrate “best of class” EFB components from each company’s portfolios to produce what officials are billing as “the industry’s most advanced electronic flight bag (EFB) system.”
Arinc Direct Flight Support Services is a suite of Web-enabled capabilities, including flight planning, flight following, weather briefs, aircraft messaging and a 24/7 flight coordinator staff for customer assistance. “Using our assessment tools, Arinc is able to pinpoint and home in on issues pertinent to its specific service challenges,” said Service Elements president Bob Hobbi.
If you routinely fly aboard a business jet with an onboard Inmarsat satcom system, chances are you’ve heard of a Florida company called Satcom Direct. You’re probably even a customer.
Founded in 1997, Satcom Direct changed the world of satcom calling forever by offering dedicated telephone numbers that callers can use to reach the company airplane no matter where in the world it might be flying.
