The FAA has approved the installation and use of Viasat’s Ka-band inflight connectivity (IFC) system, powered by the Global Aero Terminal 5510, on Dassault Falcon 900EX series aircraft. Effective immediately, Viasat’s high-speed connectivity solution is available at Dassault-owned service centres globally.
This year Viasat reported a 50% increase in typical connectivity speeds delivered previously to its Ka-band business jet customers. The company said all connected passengers will enjoy inflight applications such as video conferencing, streaming video, corporate VPN access, and more during all phases of flight, including taxi, take-off and landing.
“Key to offering incredible connectivity speed and performance to Falcon 900EX series operators, as with other aircraft types, is our high-capacity, Ka-band satellite network,” said Kai Tang, head of business aviation at Viasat. “We’re focused on delivering even more of a step-change in the pace and scope of future innovation for operators and partners like Dassault Falcon Jet service centres, always with the aim to stay ahead of the speed, flexibility, depth of capacity, coverage and security that today’s business aviation customers demand.”
