D&J Aviation joins SmartSky installation network
D&J's experienced aircraft maintenance staff, plus its focus on quality customer service, ensures it will be a highly effective partner in delivering SmartSky connectivity for a broad range of missions.
D&J recently completed a first-article installation of the SmartSky LITE on a King Air C90, with an STC expected in coming months.

D&J Aviation is the latest sales and installation partner for SmartSky and recently completed a first-article installation of the award-winning SmartSky LITE on a King Air C90, with an STC expected in the coming months. It is now commencing a SmartSky LITE first-of-type installation on a Citation Encore 560.

Headquartered in Colorado Springs, D&J is a certified Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business MRO facility with over 40 years of aviation integration and installation experience for both commercial and government aviation customers. Its capabilities include a Part 145 FAA certified repair station, engineering and design, mission systems integration, PMA contract manufacturing, as well as expertise in small unmanned aircraft systems.

"SmartSky is an exciting partner because it gives us the ability to offer a complete suite of solutions for our customers, whether special mission or business aviation. Its proven, high-performance inflight connectivity can fit virtually any size aircraft, and rave reviews from customers are driving demand for its systems," says CEO Jim Schwab. "We are beginning our second installation and are actively working on more opportunities to enable continuous streaming connectivity inflight."

D&J is a recent recipient of a military contract to install a communications suite on multiple aircraft, enabling mission operators to reliably deliver mission critical aerial intelligence content efficiently and effectively to network subscribers and mission stakeholders. The multi-mission communications suite STC will cover the Pilatus PC-12 and Cessna Citation Caravan, with D&J currently seeking candidates for both models to complete installations for the STC.

"D&J's experienced aircraft maintenance staff, combined with its focus on quality customer service, ensures it will be a highly effective partner in delivering SmartSky connectivity for a broad range of missions," says SmartSky director of MRO account management Aria Bahawdory.
