Leading satellite communications equipment manufacturer Thrane & Thrane is highlighting capabilities of its AVIATOR SwiftBroadband portfolio during this year’s LABACE. The cutting-edge AVIATOR product family supports the use of Inmarsat’s SwiftBroadband service aboard the widest range of aircraft possible, offering a solution to meet a host of customer needs in terms of bandwidth, equipment size and budget.
“LABACE offers an excellent platform to present the AVIATOR product range to the South American aviation market for the first time. With the recent certification of the AVIATOR 200, Thrane & Thrane now offers a comprehensive portfolio of SwiftBroadband solutions which support a broad range of user requirements for connection speed, equipment size and budget for communications in both the cockpit and the cabin,” comments Andy Beers, Director of Aeronautical Sales Americas, Thrane & Thrane.
Thrane & Thrane’s product range includes the AVIATOR 700 and AVIATOR 350 High Gain Antenna (HGA) options, AVIATOR 300 with Intermediate Gain Antenna (IGA) and the exceptionally compact and lightweight AVIATOR 200 Low Gain Antenna (LGA), which is the first SwiftBroadband 200 system to be fully approved for use aboard a range of leading bizjets having already received STCs for Beechcraft King Air 200, Cessna 500 – 560XL and Citation 525/525A aircraft types.
As the general aviation market in South America continues to grow, Thrane & Thrane is seeking to expand its reach in the region with the appointment of several new partners due to be announced following LABACE.
Beers continues, “To support our growing customer base in Brazil and South America, it is essential that we expand our network of distributors and dealers to ensure dedicated and locally focused service can be provided. The appointment of new partners to further support our existing network will ensure we are well-positioned to respond to increasing customer demand for in-flight connectivity within this significant region.”
