Jet Aviation lands Ka-band STC for Boeing 747-400


Engineers at Jet Aviation in Basel, Switzerland, recently achieved an EASA STC enabling a Ka-band system to be installed on a Boeing 747-400. Other connectivity projects at the company include Satcom SBB and Live TV systems installations. In addition, on a recent Rockwell Collins Live TV radome project, Jet Aviation demonstrated compliance with the latest EASA bird strike requirements.

The Boeing 747-400 Ka-band system integration took two years to develop. Jet Aviation was granted the EASA STC in late 2017. Jet Aviation is now working on a Boeing 767-300 EASA STC and intends to revise the 747-400 STC for another 747 model, with updates including a new antenna location.

“Jet Aviation always welcomes innovation that brings new technologies and choice to our customers,” said Laurent Grahn, chief engineer at Jet Aviation in Basel.

“High-speed internet connectivity is at the top of most customer wish-lists these days and we are very pleased to help ensure their requirements can be met. Our engineering team continues to develop new connectivity solutions and works closely with the EASA certification board to ensure we meet the highest business aviation standards.”
