Astronics brings wireless charging to business aviation
In the spirit of enabling passengers to enjoy their home comforts onboard, Astronics has migrated its wireless charger to the business aviation market so that fliers can keep their phones and tablets topped up.

Astronics Corporation has made its new wireless charging module (WCM) available to business aircraft and rotorcraft markets. The WCM provides wireless charging capability for passenger smart phones and other devices, and is suitable for both forward fit and aftermarket retrofit.

The WCM has been adopted by numerous seat manufacturers to provide fast, safe charging for passenger electronic devices (PEDs) including smartphones. It easily integrates into the aircraft cabin environment with placement options in passenger seats, furniture or galleys, and provides quick charging of Qi-enabled wireless devices.

“Business jet and VIP travellers expect the luxuries of home in their aircraft, right down to how they keep their newest phones and tablets charged,” explains director of business development for airborne power and control Christine Ellis. “Our wireless charger is flight-proven and integration-ready to bring an upscale touch to your next business jet programme.”
