The certification comes following Aircell’s recent unveiling of a new in-flight communications system featuring voice, narrowband data and cockpit data link services, the ST 4300. Under the new STC, Elliott can provide installations of the ATG 2000 and ST 4300 as well as the ATG 5000, ATG 4000 and the Aviator 200 and 300/350 and Gogo Vision with UCS 5000 media server into Hawker 800, 850, 9000 and 1000 aircraft. 
“This STC allows Hawker operators multiple options,” said Mark Wilken, director of avionics sales at Elliott Aviation. “The nice thing about it is you can buy the product that best fits your needs.”
