Honeywell To Be Exclusive Inmarsat Global Xpress Ka-band Satellite Airtime Provider For In-Flight Wireless Broadband Services

For example, business jet pilots will be able to connect their personal electronic devices to the GX Aviation link and communicate information such as streaming weather reports, flight delay information, rerouting, flight management system (FMS) updates, database downloads and more — faster than before.

The agreement also opens up the possibility for minimizing the amount of downtime needed for avionics software and database updates. Pilots and operators can be notified when a newer version of software or database information becomes available. With the simple press of a button, pilots will be able to upgrade their software or databases, in much the same way that current mobile operating system upgrades occur with personal mobile devices. This will greatly reduce the amount of aircraft downtime and minimize the need for technician servicing and training, as well as simplify information delivery on a global scale.
