[Avionics Magazine 06-07-2016] BendixKing, a division of Honeywell International, announced that Textron Aviation has recently completed the first installation and customer delivery of its AeroWave in-flight internet solution on a Cessna Citation CJ3. The AeroWave system is now approved by Textron Aviation for installation on CJ-series aircraft at its service centers worldwide. 

AeroWave features optional Wi-Fi routers that simplify installation and provide easy voice or data connectivity for passengers and crew. AeroWave service plans are low-cost and easy to understand with billing based on hours of use rather than the amount of data used. AeroWave not only provides voice and internet connectivity to passengers, but opens up a world of connected Honeywell services to general aviation pilots such as weather services, flight planning tools and communication with flight dispatchers or fixed based operators.

 
“AeroWave is an ideal in-flight voice and internet solution for this extremely popular airframe. With Textron Aviation service center installation approval of AeroWave, and our simple per-hour plan, which eliminates the potential surprise data charges often seen on plans billed by the amount of data used, it is now easier than ever for passengers and crew to stay connected," said Justin Ryan, president of BendixKing.
