Cessna Aircraft Co. will offer the Aircell in-flight, high-speed wireless data system for the Citation XLS+, Citation Sovereign and Citation X.
The system, which provides wireless broadband laptop, tablet PC or PDA connectivity for passengers and crew at altitudes greater than 10,000 feet above the continental United States, will be an option for deliveries starting in the second quarter of 2010.
The system, delivering speeds comparable to a typical DSL connection, features an ATG 4000 transceiver, a configuration module, and two antennas, and requires Aircell’s Axxess II dual-channel Iridium satellite telephone system (a standard feature on the Citation X).
Features of the system include multiple user access via the in-cabin wireless router, the ability to send and receive e-mails with attachments, access to virtual private networks (VPN), and various service plans.
