Duncan Aviation recently completed a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the installation of Aircell High Speed Internet Router with Wi-Fi capability in the Challenger 300. The system provides high speed inflight connectivity in the cabin. Passengers will be able to use their laptops, Blackberrys, iPhones and other Wi-Fi devices at connection speeds of 1-3 MBPS, providing an experience similar to that of ground-based Wi-Fi connections, according to company officials.
The installed system consists of an aircraft certified High Speed Data (HSD) unit, wireless Router and two belly-mounted antennas. The STC was certified under Duncan Aviation’s Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) and Major Repair and Alterations (MRA) Organization Designation Authorization (ODA).
“We now have FAA Certified Wi-Fi solutions for two business aircraft models, the Challenger 300 and the Citation 750,” said Steve Elofson, manager of avionics installations sales for Duncan Aviation. “This is only the beginning. In fact, we are planning for four additional Aircell High Speed Internet Wi-Fi certifications before the end of this year for Falcon, Citation and Hawker models.”
