Grand Junction, CO, January 16, 2012- West Star Aviation announced today they have been awarded STC approval to install Wi-Fi on the Gulfstream V. The certification includes connectivity via both or either Inmarsat Swift Broadband and the Aircell Gogo Biz networks using the Aircell CTR wireless router.
According to Rick Brainard, V.P. Sales, West Star Aviation, “The installation was completed on a West Coast based FAR Part 135 operated Gulfstream V. This operator is well known for providing global charter services, and the addition of providing both terrestrial and satellite based broadband wirelessly, will be very attractive to their clients,” added Brainard.
“We have seen a significant trend in our customers to provide the same connectivity in the aircraft as they enjoy on the ground,” said Brainard. “We have made wireless solutions a priority for all the aircraft types we service, and the Gulfstream V is the most recent example”.
