STC to install IFC on select Challenger 600-Series business jets

Receiving this certification enables Viasat and its MRO partners to offer a competitively priced, near-global IFC solution for current Bombardier Challenger 600 series aircraft owners looking to significantly upgrade their IFC performance and coverage over existing air-to-ground or L-band systems.

The Viasat Ku Advanced IFC system offers faster speeds as compared to an L-band system, enabling passengers and crew to enjoy an enhanced connectivity experience across the world’s most heavily traveled flight routes.

Claudio D’Amico, Viasat’s business area director, business aviation commented: “With this new STC, currentChallenger 600 business jet owners and operators no longer need to be left behind using a sub-par IFC system.

“We are paving the way for them to cost-effectively take advantage of Viasat’s increased speeds and near global coverage, offered through the Ku Advanced service.”
