Astronics Corporation has announced its new wireless charging module (WCM) is now available to business aircraft and rotorcraft markets.
Astronics’ WCM provides wireless charging capability for passenger smart phones and other devices, and is available for both forward fit and aftermarket retrofit.
Introduced at last year’s Aircraft Interiors Expo, the new wireless charging module has been adopted by numerous seat manufacturers to provide fast, safe charging for passenger electronic devices (PEDs) including smartphones. The WCM easily integrates into the aircraft cabin environment with placement options in passenger seats, furniture, or galleys, and provides quick charging of Qi-enabled wireless devices.
“Business jet and VIP travelers expect the luxuries of home in their aircraft, right down to how they keep their newest phones and tablets charged,” explained Christine Ellis, director of Business Development for Airborne Power & Control at Astronics AES. “Our wireless charger is flight proven and integration ready to bring an upscale touch to your next business jet program.”
