Aery and SD increase bandwidth of connectivity services
Aery Aviation supports many global flight operations, and its first of many projects undertaken with the support of Satcom Direct will be to modernise the Wi-Fi and IFE ecosystems on two Boeing Business Jets.

Aery Aviation has executed a broker/dealer agreement with Satcom Direct (SD), enabling Aery to provide a wider selection of connectivity services, supplied by SD, to its international customers. The collaboration will facilitate numerous opportunities for Aery and SD to work together to bring leading-edge technology, as well as enhanced customer experience and operating solutions to VIP, head-of-state and governmental flight departments around the world.

“We support many global flight operations, and our first of many potential projects will be to modernise the Wi-Fi and IFE ecosystems on two Boeing Business Jet aircraft operated by a long-time Middle East-based client,” comments Ken Walton, director of commercial business for Aery.

As aviation becomes more digitised, SD's next generation of services synchronises the aircraft with the flight department and uses its ability to aggregate real-time aircraft performance data to support improved financial management, predictive maintenance and asset retention value.

Aery Aviation is a full-service commercial and government services provider of aerospace design, engineering, cabin Wi-Fi, avionics and IFE/CMS systems integration, modifications, certification, maintenance and flight operations solutions that support critical aviation mission requirements for private sector V-VIP and global head of state clients, as well as domestic and foreign governments. Aery's commitment to safety, compliance and security has earned it a reputation as one of the most forward-thinking aviation companies worldwide. Aery is headquartered in Newport News, Virginia and is deployed globally to meet its clients' needs. Founded in 2016 by a team with over 200 hundred years of combined aviation experience, it has developed over 100 STCs with over 200 projects and more than 500 airworthiness releases on virtually all airframes, including Boeing, Airbus, Gulfstream, Embraer, Bombardier, Citation and Beechcraft types.
