Global Express installation milestone for Alto Aviation


Alto Aviation recently reached a new milestone – 100 Bombardier Global Express aircraft have undergone aftermarket upgrades to add certified Alto cabin digital audio systems and Cadence switch panels. Alto Aviation is celebrating 25 years serving the business aviation industry.

The digital audio upgrades have provided these aircraft with customised Alto Sound for each sitting area, Alto premium digital surround-sound, and immersive acoustic areas tailored to the specifications of each aircraft.

Alto’s audio components and Cadence switch panels have been installed by a wide variety of Alto Aviation authorised dealers worldwide, with most installations performed by AMAC, Bombardier, Duncan Aviation, Flying Colours, GEF Aviation, Pro Star, Standard Aero and West Star.

The Cadence cabin control upgrades include direct replacement of legacy Baker/Honeywell, Audio International and Lufthansa Technik equipment, eliminating woodwork by fitting the new panels in the existing cut-outs.

Most aircraft included cabin control upgrades such as Bluetooth audio, USB/HDMI ports and tailored functionality, also available for control through the Alto cabin control app.

“We can’t be prouder of this very significant milestone for our company,” said Kevin Hayes, vice president of sales and marketing at Alto Aviation. “We thank all our authorised installers for making it possible by selecting Alto for their digital audio and cabin control upgrades. We continue our strong commitment to delivering great sound and cabin control solutions specifically designed for Bombardier Global Express with simplicity and performance in mind. It makes us happy knowing that our drop-in, lightweight replacement mid/high loudspeakers subwoofers help our customers reduce labour costs, resulting in budget-friendly solutions that enhance the passengers’ experience and increase the aircraft’s value.”
