Elliot Aviation is seeking supplemental type certification (STC) for installation of Aircell's new ATG 2000 broadband system in the Hawker 800/850/900, King Air 350 and King Air B200/B200GT and Phenom 300.
Aircell released its ATG 2000, a new equipment package providing Internet and voice service on business jets, last week. The Gogo subsidiary says its system is designed to provide communication services for light jets and turboprops with fewer users at affordable prices.
Elliot expects to acquire the STCs by the first quarter of 2014.
“The Aircell ATG 2000 gives mid and light sized jet and turboprop operators reliable high-speed internet service at an extremely competitive price,” said Mark Wilken, director of avionics sales at Elliott Aviation. “Having Wi-Fi on your airplane ensures that corporate passengers can be more productive, efficient, allowing them to have a better quality of life on the ground. Charter services and corporate owners are now able to offer services similar to those on major airlines at a more affordable price.”
