Inmarsat last month announced the commercial availability of the new Swift64 mobile data pipeline, an airborne satellite Internet service that the company claims finally bridges the gap between a user’s ground-bound office and the aircraft cabin.
GDS Aero of Salem, Wis., has FAA-approved Falcon 2000/EX/EASy APU firewalls in stock for STC installation. According to the company, the firewalls offer substantially more resistance to stress cracking than the original equipment with no significant increase in weight. The company emphasizes that the firewalls are fully repairable for the life of the aircraft and its two-piece design significantly reduces labor time.
Falcon 2000 and 2000EX/EASy owners now have the option of replacing their damaged OEM APU firewalls with a significantly strengthened APU firewall repairable for the life of the aircraft.
