Having received the EASA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for a Honeywell JetWave™ installation earlier this month for the A319, A320/A321 NEO & CEO series aircraft, EAD Aerospace, an Eclipse company, has now also achieved an EASA STC for the A330-200/300 and A340-200/300 families. 

This STC­ - which is also an EASA AML-STC (Approved Model List Supplemental Type Certificate) - is using the latest generation of EAD Aerospace Satcom Universal Mounting System (SUMS). SUMS is developed, designed and manufactured in France since 2014 for various aircraft types including A319, A320, A321, A330,  A340, B777, and B747 (coming soon). 

« By receiving these new STCs, Eclipse & EAD Aerospace are proud to achieve a new milestone as one of the leading distributors of Inmarsat airtime services. » said Marc Pinault, CEO of Eclipse/EAD Aerospace.

This solution provides the customer with access to the Inmarsat GX Aviation service, offering high-speed in-flight connectivity to the passengers via their wireless devices.
