AEA: BendixKings Airborne Internet Access
Airborne connectivity has developed into a lively market for business aircraft and even for owner-flown singles and twins. Itís the latter category that BendixKing is pitching its new AeroWave 100 cabin internet system to.
In this video shot at the AEA show in Nashville, BendixKingís Jim Zanino explains that the AeroWave uses an Inmarsat satellite to provide 3G speeds for internet access and limited voice communication to an airborne aircraft. And unlike previous systems, the AeroWave will bill bandwidth by the hour, not by data volume. Cost of the system is $19,995 and itís intended for light twins and business aircraft.
