Aircell dealers in Brazil have received certification from the country's National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) for the company's AVIATOR 300 and AVIATOR 350 connectivity systems for business jets. Aircell said these new certifications represent the first-ever approvals of SwiftBroadband-based communications systems in Brazil.
 
Aircell’s AVIATOR-series products, powered by Thrane & Thrane, enable global email, light Internet and voice capabilities via Inmarsat’s satellite-based SwiftBroadband service.
 
“Aircell is proud to be bringing the productivity-enhancing benefits of SwiftBroadband to Brazil for the very first time,” said John Wade, Aircell’s executive vice president & general manager. “The diversity of these two new installations – one in a light jet and the other in a transport-category aircraft – are shining examples of SwiftBroadband’s capability, the flexibility of the AVIATOR equipment packages, and the expertise of Aircell’s global dealer & distributor network. The customers are thrilled to have the very latest technology aboard their aircraft,” concluded Wade. Following are details of the two recent system certifications in Brazil.
 
An AVIATOR 350 system was installed and certified aboard an Airbus ACJ319 in VVIP configuration by Avionics Services of Sao Paulo, while an AVIATOR 300 system was installed and certified aboard a Cessna Citation CJ3 by TAM Aviação Executiva at its Sao Paulo facility.
