Multiple Agencies Certify Viasat's Ka-Band System For Praetor 600

Will Be Offered As A Line-Fit Option On The Jet

Multiple agencies have awarded type certification to Viasat for the use of its Ka-band business aviation in-flight connectivity (IFC) system on the Embraer Praetor 600 mid-sized business jet. Following certification by the FAA, EASA and ANAC,  Viasat's IFC system will be offered as a line-fit option, and will provide passengers and crew high-speed, high-quality in-flight internet connections required to enjoy advanced streaming services including Viasat Unlimited Streaming; conduct multi-site video conference calling; use corporate virtual private networks, email and cloud services; and leverage other bandwidth-intensive business and entertainment applications—at all stages of flight.

The IFC solution uses Viasat's Global Aero Terminal 5510, which will tap into the vast combined capacity offered by ViaSat-1, ViaSat-2 and European Ka-band satellite platforms today, and will be forward-compatible with Viasat's future-generation satellite constellation, ViaSat-3—with no additional hardware upgrades.

"We are very excited with the opportunity to be selected as a line fit connectivity option for the Praetor aircraft family. Praetor owners will have access to Viasat's Ka-band in-flight connectivity system which leverages its unrivaled capacity enabling an amazing customer experience," said Claudio D'Amico, business area director, Business Aviation, Viasat. "Praetor 600 passengers and crew will be able to simultaneously experience high-speed internet connections for streaming high-quality content and accessing critical business and entertainment applications. The forward compatibility of this system will allow the Praetor 600 to take advantage of Viasat's continual innovation, ensuring an onboard connectivity experience recognized for its quality, performance and speed."

Viasat's Global Aero Terminal 5510 is an optimal connectivity solution for mid-sized cabin business jets due to it being the most compact business aviation satellite internet system on the market, while offering unmatched capacity and an experience that lets passengers and crew simultaneously stream video, movies, music, voice and more. With only three line-replaceable units (LRUs), the Viasat Global Aero Terminal 5510 provides distinctive advantages: it does not require space in the baggage compartment as it can be installed in the non-pressurized areas of the aircraft, and it lowers overall installed system weight compared to competing offerings, which can potentially offer fuel savings.
