Wireless QAR fit out gives Qatar fleet fast data

Read this story in our November 2022 printed issue.

Qatar Executive Airways has tasked Miami, Florida-based aircraft data collection and transmission company Avionica with the install of its miniQAR-avCM seamless connected aircraft flight data solution in its entire Gulfstream G650 aircraft fleet. The Avionica miniQAR-avCM is the aviation industry's smallest and lightest wireless and most robust flight data solution and provides secure and reliable data transfer in seconds.

Currently, Qatar Executive's fleet consists of 15 G650ER aircraft. The G650ER is the fastest and ultra-long-range business jet in the world. It is critical for Qatar Executive to have access to flight data within minutes of landing. This solution will enable it to have full operational control over its data distribution and analytics to ensure the best possible outcomes.

Avionica's flight data management (FDM) solutions are robust. The modular FDM products include certified flight data recorder options and custom installations to best fit the operators.

Avionica is excited about the installation on the G650ER fleet with Qatar. For 30 years, we have been listening to our customers and we understand Qatar's requirements for quick access to data and standardisation of its fleet under one platform. Our miniQAR-avCM seamless connected aircraft flight data solution packs a punch when it comes to lightweight, reliable and secure immediate data transfer, “ says vice president of commercial Claudia Espinosa.

The installations are targeted to begin in Q4 of 2022. After these installations are executed, Qatar Executive will look to possible expansion on additional fleet types.
