Global customers to take advantage of Ka connectivity
The Viasat Ku, Ka or KuKa satcom systems are claimed to be the industry's fastest. The StandardAero team has now installed the first such units, including radome, at its facility in Springfield, Illinois.

StandardAero has completed supplemental type certificate approval for installing Viasat Ku, Ka or KuKa satcom systems on Bombardier Global 5000/6000/GEX model business jets. The system is the fastest Ka satcom solution currently available.

The new STC product, including radome, was certified on August 22 with the first article being completed by StandardAero's Organisational Delegation Authorisation (ODA) team, located at the company's Springfield, Illinois MRO facility.

The Viasat product line is exclusive to StandardAero on the Global family of aircraft. Installations can be performed by any Viasat dealer. Interested owners or MROs can contact StandardAero for pricing.

“We believe this new system will give aircraft owners a competitive option for installation and service costs for their satcom needs,” states Jerry Sanders, director, avionics programme management and business development for StandardAero Business Aviation. “This is also represents another first of type, custom STC that StandardAero is known for providing to the market.”
