[Avionics Today 05-04-2016] Jet Aviation St. Louis, a full-service aircraft maintenance, modifications and completions provider, has signed its first agreement to install Honeywell’s JetWave satellite communications terminals in a Global Express to upgrade the in-flight Internet experience.

“No one else makes this terminal. Honeywell is the only one,” said David Loso, Avionics Sales at Jet Aviation St. Louis. Loso said the JetWave installation will be part of a major refurbishment on a Global Express. According to Honeywell, the JetWave multi-channel terminals operate on Inmarsat Aviation’s GX Ka-band network, enabled by three satellites that cover the entire globe to provide true broadband connectivity. The terminals in the MCS-8000 model for business aircraft share the same antenna controller, modem, and router hardware with a tail-mounted antenna.
