Passengers and crew use their mobile phones and tablets any-time, anywhere for voice calls, messages, Emails and contact lists. Light and mid-size business jets don’t have or do not invest in SATCOM for decent connectivity in flight to enable their use.
SAT-WAY created for them its affordable IRIDUM to WIFI link converter for use of personal devices to become the best SATCOM terminal for use in flight.
Instead of connecting through aircraft fixed devices, they use their own that carry all their personal contacts and data. Up to 5 units can be active on the WIFI network simultaneously, but individually to make voice calls. A telephone switch on board can connect, transfer and forward voice calls from all five. In and out SMS messages, data and light Emails can be processed even during calls.
SAT-WAY telephone network offers crew and passengers direct communication with the ground at any time. This is useful in case of any unexpected weather, technical, medical or logistic event, or just for normal communication needs.
SAT-WAY interface is an all “in one unit”, installed in a few hours as a loose equipment or a “minor modification” process. It is compliant with all EASA or FAA regulations. Investment is very low and airtime cost is around or below 1 $ per minute.
For pilots, SAT-WAY has worldwide weather data access automatically updated application, displaying METAR, TAF, NOTAM’s for all airports around the planned route, and remote situation at any destination. Included are wind, temperatures and clouds cover - updated automatically. Charts resolution and features are known as the best in the industry. Crew can connect their headsets using Bluetooth for voice calls.
SAT-WAY WIFI to IRIDIUM interface is the most competitive Satcom solution installed on PC12, PC24, CESSNA CITATION, MUSTANG, AVANTI’s and more types. Some large fleet owners have started to install them on their fleets.
Yves Hendrickx, CEO, leads SAT-WAY’s highly skilled team of European engineers and pilots who have brought together their expertise to design and supply innovative aviation products manufactured by third party partners to the highest aeronautical standards.
