Satellite Communications for Business Aircraft

Flying your business aircraft globally? Upgrading or adding satellite communications (SATCOM) capabilities to your aircraft can improve efficiency and augment safety. These systems offer reliable around the globe voice and data capabilities for the cockpit and the cabin.

In the cockpit, pilots gain voice capabilities, while FANS over Iridium (future air navigation system) offers text-based communications to reduce crew stress, and add safety. Superior to UHF and VHF radio capabilities, SATCOMcan be used well out of ATC range, and are particularly pertinent for oceanic routes. In addition, SATCOM can be a critical tool for medical emergencies or technical trouble shooting.

In the cabin, SATCOM provides high-speed communications that can be used to provide streaming data for IFE and internet access to passengers and crew. The passenger’s need to be connected is driving business aircraft operators to add internet capabilities to the cabin, for email and web surfing.

Although the SATCOM ecosystem is complex, the Mid-Canada Mod Center (MC2) team, can help you select the option that fits your needs. There are a variety of options including:
