Banyan qualifies to install Bongiovi audio system
Banyan Air Service has achieved certified installer status for the Bongiovi Aviation Speaker-less audio system after completing the installation on a Gulfstream G550 at its full-service facility.

Banyan Air Service has been listed as a certified installer for the Bongiovi Aviation speaker-less audio system, after completing the installation on a Gulfstream G550 at its full-service facility in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The Bongiovi speaker-less audio system, with the use of patented signal processing, is able to overcome a noisy cabin environment and reproduce high-fidelity audio. The integrated signal-processing technology is combined with speaker-less transducers that mount behind the interior panels in the ceiling and sidewalls to produce an immersive audio experience throughout the cabin.

In addition to the G550 installation, a system has been installed in the Banyan Pilot Shop's Gulfstream GII mockup. This Gulfstream mockup, the first of its kind for any MRO, allows Banyan to demonstrate the sound system to its customers.

Avionics sales manager Eric Smith has heard the Bongiovi speaker-less audio system in HondaJets and at the NBAA annual convention prior to its installation in the Gulfstream G550 and Pilot Shop mockup. He says: “The sound is impressive. I'm excited to give our customers the option of the Bongiovi system featuring such high-end audio entertainment.”

Of the installation he adds: “We have not had this kind of support for a first installation from anyone; very impressed, and top notch by the whole Bongiovi team.”

Banyan's Gulfstream customer not only uses the aircraft for personal travel but also leases it out, so it was important to provide the latest in cabin audio along with installing an Aviation Clean Air (ACA) ionising system, proven to neutralise Covid 19.
