Davinci Jets will install SmartSky Networks inflight connectivity on a large portion of managed fleet. Davinci has just completed an order for 10 SmartSky shipsets, with a commitment for installation by its MRO, Davinci Jets Services, by the end of 2024. The continuously growing partnership between the two companies was bolstered by the announcement of a sales and installation agreement in March, enabling more business aircraft to stay connected nationwide.

Eric Legvold, CEO of Davinci Jets, commented: "This agreement is the result of feedback from our customers who are flying SmartSky-equipped aircraft right now and are ecstatic with the performance. SmartSky' patented next-generation technology is proven to be fast, reliable, and allows for video streaming at 41,000 feet on multiple devices at once. It is unlike anything we've ever seen for the turboprop and light jet class aircraft. Having the majority of our fleet equipped with SmartSky's industry-leading inflight connectivity means our customers are finally able to have the continuously connected streaming and office-like experience they have been requesting for years, whether on turboprops or heavys."

Rich Pilock, Vice President of Connectivity Sales for SmartSky Networks, said: "As both an MRO and charter firm, Davinci is well-known for offering both superior service installations and flight experiences to their customers, a reputation which will be strengthened by having the most advanced inflight connectivity ever built. With this expansion of SmartSky on the majority of their fleet, more Davinci customers will be able to experience all of the perks of inflight connectivity that actually works – all plans include streaming and no pre-set device limits.
