AirCell Receives EASA Certification for ST 3100 Satcom

Additional EASA Certifications Pending as AirCell Continues European Expansion

AirCell has received EASA certification for its popular ST 3100 satcom system aboard a Cessna Citation 550.

“We’re very proud of this latest AirCell certification and pleased at the assurance and installation ease that it will provide our customers and dealers,” said Jean-Luc Rosenfeld (pictured below), who is responsible for AirCell’s European operations.

“It will allow us to continue the dramatic growth we’re experiencing here in Europe.”

AirCell’s 2005 European sales have reportedly doubled over 2004 levels. The company continues to be active with European airframe OEM’s and their U.S. counterparts, including Piaggio, Dassault and Pilatus. AirCell systems are also operating aboard the fleet of Europe’s leading fractional ownership operator. AirCell has EASA Part 145 approval (certificate reference number EASA.145.5595).

In related news, the AirCell Axxess satcom system is also in the process of EASA certification for multiple aircraft types, with completion expected soon.

The AirCell ST 3100 system is reportedly the industry’s best-selling satcom system, and is standard or optional equipment on nearly two dozen OEM aircraft programs worldwide. It operates on the Iridium Satellite System, providing pilots and passengers all-altitude, all-latitude coverage throughout the world.

In addition to its telephone capability, the ST 3100 system acts as a global communications link, providing in-flight services such as graphical weather, messaging and ATC information through Universal Avionics' UniLink; 24-hour medical service through MedLink Powered by AirCell; and real time news, sports, and financial data through Rockwell Collins' Airshow Network.

The ST 3100 includes next-generation handsets, which were announced this spring. The new handsets incorporate full color displays with intuitive graphical menus, active & passive noise reduction, integrated headset/earbud jacks, internal phone books and a variety of user-customizable features. Shipping of the new handsets is scheduled to begin this month.
