Aviaa Names Preferred IFE, Connectivity Installer

 - April 22, 2019, 11:21 AM

Business aviation group purchasing organization Aviaa has named Maine-based FAA Part 145 repair station Brunswick Aviation its preferred in-flight entertainment (IFE) installation and MRO supplier. One of the few shops in the U.S. dedicated to cabin connectivity and IFE, Brunswick serves Gulfstreams, Bombardier Globals, BBJs, and Dassault Falcons.

It is a preferred Honeywell center of connectivity and authorized dealer specializing in Jet ConneX JetWave Ka-band connectivity. Brunswick owns a JetWave test set, enabling it to do all the system configurations, and can kit out most of the assembly at its Brunswick Executive Airport headquarters and, starting in June, at a satellite facility at Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley International Airport.

“We recognize the value Aviaa is delivering to its members and see this as a win-win partnership for both of us,” said Brunswick president Per Person. “Our ethos is that operators want equipment installed quickly. They shouldn’t have to wait until a major MRO event.”

Aviaa’s members are guaranteed rapid installation in under two weeks as Brunswick devotes an entire team to one aircraft in the hangar at one time, and they will also benefit from discounts on current and popular connectivity products. “Passengers are obsessive about keeping connected when they fly, and we are pleased to engage with Brunswick and its vast experience in the sector,” noted Aviaa CEO Gillian Hayes.
