Citadel Completions becomes authorised Starlink dealer
Citadel can now extend its portfolio to include both sales and installation services on large cabin, narrow/wide-bodied aircraft for Starlink’s groundbreaking aviation products.

Louisiana-based Citadel Completions is delighted to confirm its recent acceptance as an authorised Starlink dealer within the business aviation sector. This strategic alliance permits Citadel to extend its portfolio to include both sales and installation services on large cabin, narrow and wide bodied aircraft for Starlink's aviation products.

As a holistic service provider, Citadel is proficient in delivering an all-encompassing solution: from the procurement of high-quality electro-mechanical components to the execution of full-scale installation services. This ensures that private aircraft can benefit from unparalleled high-speed connectivity. Moreover, Citadel is committed to providing exemplary customer support post-project completion, underpinned by a 24 month warranty on workmanship and installation services.

Starlink's technology is truly groundbreaking and offers unparalleled connectivity speeds boasting a robust capacity of up to 220 Mbps per aircraft. With these vast speeds, passengers are assured of continuous internet access for their streaming needs in-flight. This advanced technology facilitates seamless video streaming and virtual meetings, regardless of aircraft altitude. At the heart of this technology is the Starlink aviation system, comprising an electronically steered phased array antenna that operates within the Ku frequency band, which comes complete with a power supply and two wi-fi access points. This system can be conveniently installed under an existing radome possessing suitable transmissibility characteristics, ensuring impressive connectivity. Additionally, Starlink is actively pursuing future certification for its aero terminal installations, which are done on a case-by-case basis with Starlink's engineering team.

Citadel Completions' 260,000sq ft facility at Chennault International airport is equipped with multiple hangars and a 10,700ft runway, capable of accommodating the largest aircraft.

Its capabilities extend beyond design services to include engineering, MRO and manufacturing for aircraft modifications. It holds numerous Part 145 and international certifications, supporting aircraft registered globally.
