Alto passes 300 Cadence Switch Panel installations


More than 300 business jets – including Bombardier, Citation, Falcon and Gulfstream types – now feature Alto Cadence Switch Panels from Alto Aviation.

Cadence Switch Panels are Alto Aviation’s direct replacement and customisable cabin passenger controls that allow functionality through discrete logic and no software, minimising or eliminating woodwork by defining bezels that fit into the existing holes.

The foundation for Cadence is to use modular, discrete switch assemblies. The modules range from one to six positions, including USB charging, HDMI port, Bluetooth interface and ordinance signage. Cadence is compatible with the aircraft’s existing CMS and IFE system. Additionally, by defining a bezel that fits into an existing cutout, Alto provides a CMS/IFE upgrade solution without changing the woodwork.

All installations were customised to replace the obsolete, non-serviceable, or broken passenger controls, as well as new installations, in many cases repurposing functionality and updating the CMS capabilities of each cabin.

Many leading MROs in business aviation have installed Alto Cadence Switch Series in a wide variety of private aircraft, including light jets and turboprops, medium, large and bizliner cabins and special-mission aircraft.

“We are so excited about this new milestone in our company,” said Kevin Hayes, vice president of sales and marketing at Alto Aviation. “We have surpassed 300 Cadence Switch Panels with unique, customised solutions for our clients, impeccably installed by top MROs worldwide in a wide variety of aircraft, including Gulfstream, Falcon, Citation and Bombardier. In addition, we continue designing, manufacturing in-house, and customising passenger controls that provide easy and fast installations with unrivalled performance.”
