TrueNorth Avionics has received a supplemental type certificate (STC) to install its Optelity Cabin Gateway Pro in-flight connectivity and communications system on Gulfstream V (G-V) aircraft.
The STC was developed and completed by Mid-Canada Mod Centre, with the aircraft owner moving from TrueNorth’s Simphon? system to its Optelity Cabin Gateway Pro system, which offers a smaller footprint, all the in-flight connectivity options the owner needed and a streamlined upgrade path.
“Our track record for developing STCs and working with partners like TrueNorth on these programmes is a source of great pride. Together, we help owners to extend and enhance the value of their current aircraft,” said Bill Arsenault, vice president of the Mid Canada Mod Centre. “In our experience, the Optelity Cabin Gateway was designed for ease of installation and certification, making the job easier for us.”
“It is crucial to provide a business jets with the entire system including the components and certification package, but also the means of maintaining their investment in cabin communications, which means Optelity Care, our membership-based support program,” continued Mark van Berkel, TrueNorth’s CEO. “Mid-Canada Mod Centre is an important long-time partner with a stellar reputation when it comes to STCs. We are always proud to work with Bill and his team and are delighted they have achieved this success with the Optelity Cabin Gateway, it’s another step forward for this connectivity system.”
