Sky Connect has earned two STCs to
Sky Connect LLC which permit installations of Sky Connect equipment
on two popular series of helicopters – the Bell 206B, L-1,
L-3, and L-4 aircraft and the Sikorsky S-76 (models A thru C).
Currently, more than 150 service facilities are authorized to
install Sky Connect equipment worldwide.

company and makes it even easier for customers to choose Sky
Connect for their missions,” said Wiley Loughran, senior vice
president of sales and marketing. Loughran said that the STCs
include Sky Connect’s newest control head called the Mission
Management Unit, which provides flight crews with two-way text
