Press release from: Banyan Air Service

On January 7, 2012 a Beech Jet 400A departed for Argentina outfitted with the Thrane and Thrane AVIATOR 200 Swift Broadband (SBB) system. The AVIATOR 200 turns an aircraft into a business tool and enables pilots and passengers to use PDA devices including Blackberry®, iPhone® and iPads to access a multitude of applications; such as, email, internet browsing, smart phone connectivity and voice communications.

Last year Banyan received the first STC for the Swift Broadband (SBB) 200 class of service in the United States. This year Banyan delivered the first aircraft outfitted with AVIATOR 200 to the South American market.

“Banyan has been one of the industry leaders for High Speed Data and Swift Broadband installations for the last three years and to achieve another first clearly shows the vision of both Banyan and our partner Thrane and Thrane,” says Brian Wilson, Banyan’s director of avionics.

“The AVIATOR 200 Swift Broadband class of service is a perfect fit for our Latin American customers. Passengers enjoy staying connected and entertained during the flight and before departure the crew can download the latest weather conditions, flight plans and charts on their iPads and EFB’s. Banyan has performed more AVIATOR 200 installations on more airframes than any of our competitors. The installation can be performed as quickly as seven days and can be completed at Banyan during regular maintenance inspections,” states Wilson.
