Global 5000 to undergo CMS and satcom upgrade at DC Aviation


A Global 5000 is to be upgraded at DC Aviation Group with equipment including the Gogo Elite Smart Cabin System (SCS Elite), Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband high data rate service and a new satellite communication system.

The SCS Elite package is a highly integrated smart cabin system that allows passengers to control the cabin environment with a single interface.

“No other solution on the market delivers the breadth and depth of functionality that SCS Elite does,” said Daniel Heidrich, director of sales, technical services at DC Aviation. “We are very pleased that this system allows the customers to use their own Personal Integrated Device (PID) to do whatever they choose. This can include checking inflight data, watching a movie, browsing the web and making or receiving a phone call.”

DC Aviation has been a full-service MRO provider for Gogo Business Aviation since 2017 and participates as a partner for hardware sales and installations on various types of business aircraft for Gogo’s portfolio of products.

In addition to the Smart Cabin System, the Global 5000 will also be upgraded with an Inmarsat Swift Broadband High Data Rate (HDR) system that offers enhanced data streaming rates. Furthermore, the aircraft will be equipped with a new satellite communication system.
