A Constant Aviation facility in Cleveland, Ohio, has completed its first installation of Honeywell’s JetWave MCS-8000 Ka-band satcom hardware on a Bombardier Global Express. The work was performed along with a 60-month inspection.
The company says the tail-mount antenna and radome installation can be performed on various medium- and large-cabin aircraft. The system provides broadband internet service globally and can be paired with various routers.
“We have certainly seen a trend in discretionary spending focused on connectivity and cabin upgrades,” said Jerry Sanders, director of avionics business development and programs. “Constant Aviation has already experienced a 38% increase in customers signing up for domestic and international connectivity solutions compared with customers who requested installations last year. We see the demand for a faster broadband internet experience, and Constant Aviation is striving to be the leader in connectivity solutions”.
