Banyan Air Service

Banyan Air Service based at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport recently completed the second of two Bombardier Challenger 604 aircraft with the Aircell AGT-4000 Gogo inflight internet system. One of the installations included the Aircell Axxess two channel Iridium system, while both aircraft were certified for Wi-Fi in the cabin. The avionics installation was done at the customer’s maintenance base during a minimum maintenance inspection.

“After repeated requests from our charter customers asking if our fleet is Wi-Fi equipped we decided to seek advice from an avionics shop experienced with these type of installations,” stated Barry Ellis, CEO of charter company Hop-a-Jet based at FXE. “We didn’t have to look too far as Banyan Air Service, also based at FXE, had the experience, knowledge and expertise to complete the installations on our aircraft. After our first aircraft was outfitted with connectivity we noticed an increased utilization rate within the first month. This convinced our management team to outfit the remainder of our large cabin fleet and Banyan Air Service performed the upgrades in our own hangar and delivered the aircraft on time.”

“Connectivity continues to be the hottest product in the avionics industry,” states Brian Wilson, Banyan’s director of avionics. “Today passengers are demanding Wi-Fi in the cabin and while some charter operators were quick to see the competitive edge of having Wi-Fi onboard; others are now racing to catch up so their aircraft are not left sitting on the tarmac.”

In addition to Wi-Fi, and HSD, the Banyan avionics team is expert with in-flight entertainment systems, glass cockpits, LPV/WAAS upgrades, Flight Management Systems, Satellite TV, Enhanced Ground Proximity, Warning Systems, Multifunction Displays, Satellite Communications, Iridium, and Traffic Collision Avoidance Systems.

Banyan’s avionics department is certified as both an FAA and EASA repair station and has also earned repair station designations for Argentina, Brazil, Bermuda and Venezuela. Banyan also offers a mobile avionics team to provide services on location. For more information, visit www.banyanair.com/avionics.
