BendixKing Makes Affordable In-Flight Connectivity A Reality For The General Aviation Market

NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  BendixKing, a division of Honeywell (NYSE: HON), unveiled the BendixKing AeroWave 100, a high-speed in-flight Internet solution, at the Aviation Electronics Association International Convention & Trade Show today. The BendixKing AeroWave 100 system offers, for the first time, affordable in-flight Internet to general aviation aircraft, including twins, turboprops and light jets. In addition, the system utilizes low-cost service plans based on hours of use.

"We believe that fast, affordable, in-flight Internet connectivity will lay a foundation for the next generation of general aviation," said Kevin Gould, president of BendixKing. "The BendixKing AeroWave 100 is the first step in an ecosystem for general aviation aircraft, including light jets and turboprops, which inspires innovation in the cockpit and brings us closer to a fully connected aircraft."

The BendixKing AeroWave 100 lowers the barrier to entry for plane owners and pilots, finally allowing them to easily justify the cost of adding in-flight Internet to their aircraft while providing increased operational efficiency and safety.

Charter operators, specifically, can benefit from the BendixKing AeroWave 100 by giving pilots access to worldwide graphical weather service, flight planning tools and connectivity to operations. Passengers of equipped aircraft will have the ability to send and receive email and attachments, browse the Web, and access cloud services and other mobile applications, increasing their productivity and enabling them to stay connected with their businesses while airborne.

"As a charter operator, our customers want access to the Web while they're in the air, but until now it's been out of reach; the options available for turboprops and light jets were extremely limited, and installation costs for the solutions available could easily exceed $100,000," said Denise Wilson, president and CEO of Desert Jet. "With the BendixKing AeroWave 100, we'll be able to justify the cost of adding Internet connectivity to our planes because the system is affordable and simple. Being able to offer our customers in-flight Internet will give our business a competitive advantage."
