All STC’s are expected to be completed by first quarter 2014.

The service also allows passengers to use their own smartphones for calling and texting in flight with their own mobile number. The ATG 2000 carries a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $57,000 and can be installed with minimal downtime in conjunction with maintenance event.
“The Aircell ATG 2000 gives mid and light sized jet and turboprop operators reliable high-speed internet service at an extremely competitive price,” said Mark Wilken, Director of Avionics Sales at Elliott Aviation. “Having WiFi on your airplane ensures that corporate passengers can be more productive, efficient, allowing them to have a better quality of life on the ground.
