Clay Lacy Aviation’s facility at Van Nuys Airport in Los Angeles, California, has installed Honeywell’s JetWave Ka-band connectivity hardware on a Bombardier Global 6000.
The facility is a Part 145 repair station, and the company an authorised Honeywell dealer.
“Clay Lacy performed this complex JetWave upgrade on schedule and on budget thanks to its Honeywell and Bombardier expertise,” said Renan Bayar, captain of the Global 6000.
The factory-trained Honeywell experts at Clay Lacy can install the multicomponent JetWave hardware system on select Dassault Falcon, Bombardier Global and Bombardier Challenger business jets. The typical downtime is 30-35 days.
JetWave enables business jets to connect to Inmarsat’s Global Xpress Ka-band network for fast, seamless internet service at any altitude, almost anywhere.
International private jet travellers can enjoy high-speed streaming internet speeds on all their devices. The system enables video conferencing, watching movies, sharing video on social media, and sending and receiving large work files.
Clay Lacy offers a growing range of business jet maintenance, inspection, repair and mobile AOG services. As well as the facility at Van Nuys Airport, it has two other Californian operations – at John Wayne Airport (Orange County) and McClellan-Palomar Airport (near San Diego). Its other sites are at Boeing Field Airport in Seattle (Washington) and Waterbury-Oxford Airport in Oxford (Connecticut).
The company is an authorised dealer for major avionics and cabin connectivity solutions. Its other services include complete interior upgrades and refurbishment.
