Florida's Southeast Aerospace is bringing FANS 1/A+ and CPDLC capability to Citation 560, Encore and Ultra aircraft. The technology includes cabin voice and internet connectivity via an Avionica router.

Southeast Aerospace (SEA), baed in Melbourne, Florida, has completed a new STC for Citation 560 (V), Encore and Ultra aircraft.

Originally developed for the United States military UC-35 aircraft, the STC brings FANS 1/A+ and CPDLC capability, international internet connectivity and a new cockpit voice recorder and flight data recorder combo unit (CVFDR) to the aircraft types.

FANS 1/A+ and CPDLC capability is accomplished through the use of Universal Avionics Corp UNS 1EspW FMS', UL 801 VDL Mode 2 datalink, the CVFDR-145R and the Cobham Aviator 300D with an Intermediate Gain Antenna (IGA-5001). International cabin voice and internet connectivity is provided through the Aviator 300D using the Inmarsat SwiftBroadband satellite constellation. The new STC also includes Wi-Fi activation utilising the Avionica avWiFi wireless router.

Structural mounting of all new equipment including the IGA-5001, using a SEA designed and manufactured contour plate, is included in the STC. SEA has received FAA PMA to construct all parts and kits required to perform the modification in its entirety. SEA is presently offering the complete or partial use of this STC on business aviation Citation 560 Ultra and Encore aircraft.
