Group purchasing organization AVIAA has made Brunswick Aviation Services its communications and IFE MRO supplier in the USA.
Brunswick Aviation Services, based on the East Coast, holds FAA Part 145 certification and caters for Gulfstream, Bombardier Global, BBJ and Dassault Falcon platforms. As well as avionics modifications, the company installs IFE and equipment including Honeywell’s Jet ConneX JetWave offering.
AVIAA members are guaranteed installation and customization as quickly as inside two weeks. A preferred Honeywell Center of Connectivity and authorized dealer specializing in JetWave Ka-band connectivity exclusively from Inmarsat Jet ConneX, Brunswick devotes an entire team to one aircraft in the hangar, at any one time. AVIAA members will also benefit from discounts on current and popular connectivity products available today.
“We are delighted to welcome Brunswick as a valued addition to our US supplier family,” said Gillian Hayes, CEO at AVIAA. “They have quickly garnered an excellent reputation for efficiently integrating connected aircraft within minimal downtime to customers.
“For our members they offer a reliable gateway to the internet, especially as more and more operators look to add or enhance connectivity to their existing fleets. Passengers are obsessive about keeping connected when they fly, and we are pleased to engage with Brunswick and its vast experience in the sector.”
“We recognize the great value AVIAA is delivering to its members and see this as a win-win partnership for both of us,” said Per Person, president, Brunswick Aviation. “Our ethos is that operators want equipment installed quickly. They shouldn’t have to wait until a major MRO event. We are pledging two weeks for installations.”
Brunswick has performed two JetWave satellite installations, each inside two weeks, earning itself Connectivity Center of Excellence and Channel Partner recognition from Honeywell.
Brunswick owns a JetWave test set, enabling it to do all the configurations and has kitted out most of the assembly in its Maine or Pennsylvania hangars to further reduce cycle time.
“JetWave connectivity puts the world at your fingertips and we are excited to be on standby for AVIAA’s valued customers,” said Person.
