Greenwich AeroGroup announced today that it has successfully installed its LiveAero system on an AW139 at its Summit Aviation facility in Middletown, Del.
“This is an exciting achievement for the LiveAero platform,” said Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Greenwich AeroGroup Daniel Lafrance. “This satellite broadband connectivity solution is the best value in the marketplace and it is geared to fit all AW139 configurations, including current production aircraft so that all operators can connect”.
LiveAero, developed by Thales, is the only fixed wing and rotorcraft data broadband solution that works everywhere in the world, including remote, oceanic and polar regions, for passengers requiring smartphone, tablet or laptop connectivity. Based upon the Iridium OpenPortTM broadband technology, the system has Wi-Fi enabled, bi-directional data effective speed of up to 300 kbps through network built in optimization. The system also includes three separate voice lines for calls to be placed anywhere in the world. Connectivity is available in the air or on the ground and is not impaired by helicopter rotors or weather conditions.
Greenwich AeroGroup expects to receive the Supplemental Type Certificate on the AW139 in approximately 30 days and is featuring the LiveAero system in its Heli-Expo Booth # 509.
