COMLUX IS APPROVED: WIFI STC FOR BOMBARDIER CHALLENGER AIRCRAFT

COMLUX IS APPROVED: WIFI STC FOR BOMBARDIER CHALLENGER AIRCRAFT

Comlux Aviation Services, BHE & Associates complete FAA certification of Aircell application

Comlux Aviation Services and BHE & Associates, along with Aircell®, have just announced a Supplemental Type Certification of the Aircell Wireless Router WIFI on Bombardier CL-601, CL-601-3A, CL-601-3R, CL-604, and CL-605 aircraft. Comlux and BHE combined resources and joined efforts to bring high-quality, high-speed data capability to the Challenger market.

“The successful certification of the Wireless Router will allow our customers the freedom to connect with a true high speed service anywhere in the cabin,” according to Jim Huntoon, VP of Sales for Comlux Aviation Services.

Bob Hurley with BHE & Associates of San Antonio (TX) provided the engineering and coordinated with the FAA. BHE is the point of contact for purchase of the STC, which is available immediately, supplied through authorized Aircell dealers. Hurley said, “The work with Comlux and Aircell resulted in an integrated installation that works reliably and virtually invisibly; passengers can simply use their WIFI and never have to think about it.”

Comlux Aviation Services in Indianapolis has just completed installation and testing of the first two STCs for a single Challenger operator in the US northeast.
