Astronics AeroSat’s FliteStream T-310 has been certified for business aircraft. The company gained an FAA STC and Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA), enabling the satcom connectivity solution to be installed on a Gulfstream GIV-SP.
The FliteStream T-310 is currently offered in partnership with Satcom Direct (SD) as part of its SD Xperience end-to-end solution. The FliteStream T-310 satcom solution includes the next-generation iDirect CX780 modem, providing compatibility with both Ku-band wide beam and HTS spot beam satellite networks.
“We are excited to achieve an FAA STC and PMA for the new FliteStream T-310 product line,” said Matthew Harrah, president of Astronics AeroSat. “This new product variant will provide an improved business aviation connectivity experience to passengers, making an office-in-the-sky dream a reality. We look forward to continuing and expanding our relationships with Satcom Direct and Intelsat. We expect the FliteStream T-310 will be an important part of the SD Xperience package now and in the future.”
Astronics AeroSat’s FliteStream T-Series includes its patented Rexolite Lens technology. The company says FliteStream T-Series provides high-speed internet and IPTV in a single antenna.
