Elliott Aviation has added a slew of Learjet models to its STC that covers the activation and use of Wi-Fi products such as routers and allows for blanket approval of the activation of newer Wi-Fi bands. The STC now applies to all variants of the Bombardier Learjet 60, 55, 36, 35, 31, 29, 28, 25, and 24, as well as the Hawker 750.
Applying to new installations and allowing for updates to existing installations, the STC covers Wi-Fi bands A, B, G, N, and AC. Other types already approved under the STC are the Learjet 40 through 75; Hawker 800 through 1000; Beechjet 400A/Hawker 400XP; Beechcraft King Air 200/300 series; Astra; Embraer Phenom 100/300; Cessna Citation 500/550/S550, 560/560XL, and 650 series; and Daher TBM series.
The Moline, Illinois-based MRO will perform installations at its three facilities or sell the STC to dealers for one-time use at $5,000 each. “This STC has been a proven solution and we are happy to be able to offer it to many different Lear customers,” said Mark Wilken, Elliott v-p of avionics programs and operational logistics.
