Approval reduces paperwork and streamlines installation of AeroWave in-flight internet

     ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — May 12, 2016 — BendixKing, a division of Honeywell Aerospace (NYSE: HON), announced it has received FAA approval for the installation of its AeroWave 100 in-flight internet product on broad list of popular general aviation airframes.   An approved model list (AML) supplemental type certificate (STC) approval is now available for popular turboprop and turbine airframes including the Cessna Mustang, M2, CJ2, CJ3, CJ4, Caravan, Embraer Phenom 100 & 300, Pilatus PC-12, Daher TBM 700/850/900, Textron King Airs, Mitsubishi MU-2 and Turbo Commanders. Additional models will be added to the approved model list over time.
     The AeroWave system features optional certified Wi-Fi routers that simplify installation and provide easy voice or data connectivity for passengers and crew. AeroWave service plans are low-cost and easy to understand with billing based on hours of use rather than the amount of data used. AeroWave not only provides voice and internet connectivity to passengers, but opens up a world of connected Honeywell services to GA pilots such as internet weather services, flight planning tools and communication with flight dispatchers or FBOs.
    "We are excited to have achieved this milestone for our AeroWave system because it significantly reduces the paperwork and overall installation time” said Justin Ryan, president, BendixKing. “Now a broader range of general aviation aircraft can easily get a low-cost in-flight internet capability which enables a world of services for both passengers and crew."

About the AeroWave™ 100
The AeroWave™ 100 is an Inmarsat Class 15 system that provides worldwide Internet access previously available only to business jets. Complementing the AeroWave 100 are optional certified Wi-Fi routers, available in data-only and voice/data configurations, which enable quick and easy connection to the service.

         •    The simple, prepaid $40/hour service plan eliminates unexpected charges associated with traditional per-MB satellite data plans.
