May 18, 2016

Affordable AeroWave™ 100 now features optional voice/data Wi-Fi routers

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — May 17, 2016 — BendixKing, a division of Honeywell International (NYSE: HON), announced that Textron Aviation has recently completed the first installation and customer delivery of its AeroWave™™ in-flight internet solution on a Cessna Citation CJ3. The AeroWave™ system is now approved by Textron Aviation for installation on CJ-series aircraft at its service centers worldwide. The system features optional 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 general aviation pilots such as weather services, flight planning tools and communication with flight dispatchers or fixed based operators.

    “We are very pleased that Textron Aviation has approved the AeroWave™ system for retrofit on CJ-series aicraft,” said Justin Ryan, president, BendixKing. “AeroWave™ is an ideal in-flight voice and Internet solution for this extremely popular airframe. With Textron Aviation service center installation approval of AeroWave™, and our simple per-hour plan, which eliminates the potential surprise data charges often seen on plans billed by the amount of data used, it is now easier than ever for passengers and crew to stay connected.”

About the AeroWave™ 100
The AeroWave™ 100 is an Inmarsat Class 15 system that provides worldwide Internet access previously available only to larger business jets. Complementing the AeroWave™ 100 are optional Wi-Fi routers, available in data-only and voice/data configurations, which enable quick and easy connection to the service.
Features include:
•    The simple, prepaid $40/hour service plan eliminates unexpected charges associated with traditional per-MB satellite data plans.
•    Optional Wi-Fi router capabilities include either data-only or data and high-quality voice support. Voice support requires an add-on Inmarsat voice data package.
•    Installation kits and required RF cables are now included in the base system.
