Router Enables Office-like Airborne Connectivity for Light Aircraft Operators
ORLANDO & OTTAWA—26 APR 2016 TrueNorth Avionics reported today that BendixKing, a division of Honeywell, has selected the company to develop the AeroWave™ Router, a mini-router/wireless access point (WAP) for the BendixKing AeroWave™ 100 High-Speed Internet System. Lightweight, the new router weighs just half a pound, fits in the palm of your hand, and is designed to allow GA aircraft passengers and pilots to use their own phones, tablets and other Wi-Fi devices in-flight.
“We are enthusiastic about the AeroWave 100 system, offering an innovative solution for the general aviation market, and this great opportunity to work with BendixKing in providing new airborne communications functionality to an underserved aircraft category,” said Mark van Berkel, TrueNorth CEO. “As part of the system, our integrated mini-router/wireless access point brings communications capabilities previously reserved for long-range aircraft into the cabins of light aircraft like Cessna Citations and Bombardier Learjets. With certified Wi-Fi people can stay connected inflight.”
As part of the AeroWave 100 system, the AeroWave Router enables certified Wi-Fi on light, very light and medium jet and turboprop aircraft. Weighing-in at about half a pound, the router is a small, compact component that will offer VVIP level communications capabilities. The router comes with an installation kit and an externally mounted antenna, and is compatible with TrueNorth’s external Wi-Fi antenna. In addition, users can use TrueNorth’s MyStylus App to make calls from their own personal iOS and Android smartphones.
