CARLSBAD, Calif. -- Viasat announced an exclusive distributor agreement with StandardAero to offer a high-speed connectivity package for Bombardier Global business jets. The package will cover Viasat's Ka-band and dual-band Ka-/Ku-band equipment, inclusive of the Viasat shipset, radome, and STC. The package is designed for all Bombardier Global Express, Global Express XRS, Global 5000, and Global 6000 aircraft.

Through this agreement, operators and other Bombardier Global maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) shops can work directly with StandardAero to install Viasat's in-flight connectivity system.

"Owners and operators of Bombardier Global aircraft no longer have to wait to install the industry's fastest, most robust in-flight connectivity system for their business jets-they can install Viasat's advanced business jet connectivity system today," said Jerry Goodwin, vice president, Global Network Services, Viasat. "Our in-flight connectivity service is proven to support more passengers and more devices simultaneously through all phases of flight when performing bandwidth-intensive applications, including accessing virtual private networks, or streaming high-definition video calls, cloud content, or live TV entertainment. And with our dual-band solution, operators will have access to more global coverage redundancy and still have Viasat's highest-speed Ka-band solution."

StandardAero will offer Viasat's most advanced business aviation dual-band, Ku-band and Ka-band shipsets, including the Global Aero Terminal 5510, which will tap into the ViaSat-1, ViaSat-2, and European Ka-band satellite platforms, and will be forward-compatible with Viasat's future-generation satellite constellation, ViaSat-3-enabling use of the ViaSat-3 capacity with no additional hardware upgrades.

ViaSat-3 is an ultra-high capacity satellite platform, which will be comprised of three ViaSat-3 class satellites offering global coverage. Each ViaSat-3 satellite is expected to deliver one terabit per second capacity, which is around the estimated total network capacity of commercial communications satellites in space today.

"Our business jet customers want fast, reliable internet-no matter where they fly," said Marc Drobny, president, StandardAero Business Aviation. "As the only master distributor of Viasat's Ka-band and dual-band packages, we have an opportunity to work with our Bombardier Global aircraft customers as well as other MROs, and set them up with a connectivity solution that will leverage the latest satellite technology for faster speeds, more capacity and improved performance today and well into the future. We are proud to expand our industry leadership in connectivity solutions with this exciting partnership-especially as more business jet customers want to get online, globally."

TOULOUSE, France -- Airbus Corporate Jets (ACJ) plans on displaying an ACJ319 at this year's National Business Aviation Association show, highlighting the full-size living space on offer. Operated by K5 Aviation and available for VVIP charter, this particular ACJ319 is making its airshow debut.

"An Airbus corporate jet gives wings to more productive and sociable lifestyles in the sky than traditional business jets, while shrinking the distance between continents in elegantly affordable style," says ACJ President Benoit Defforge.

The ACJ320 Family can do this because it features the widest and tallest cabin of large traditional business-jets, while being similar in size and costing about the same to fly.

Continuous improvements mean that the ACJ320 family now includes the ACJ319neo, flying eight passengers 6,750 nautical miles (12,500 km) or more than 15 hours, and the ACJ320neo, flying 25 passengers 6,000 nautical miles (11,100 km) or more than 13 hours.

Deliveries of the ACJ320neo will begin in the coming months, and those of the ACJ319neo next year. Customers include Acropolis Aviation, Comlux and K5 Aviation.

Both aircraft feature new-generation engines and Sharklets to save fuel, to enable even more intercontinental range and to ensure that they keep their value well.

Airbus also offers a complete family of VIP widebodies that can carry even more passengers nonstop to the world - including the new ACJ330 neo and ACJ350 XWB.

FALCON 8X CERTIFIED FOR EFVS TO 100 FT OPERATIONS

SAINT-CLOUD, France -- The Falcon 8X business jet has been certified by EASA and the FAA for an enhanced flight vision system capability that gives operational credit for poor visibility approaches down to 100 ft, greatly improving access to airports in bad weather and significantly enhancing fleet efficiency.

The new EFVS capability, provided through the 8X’s revolutionary FalconEye combined vision system (CVS), was certified for operational use following the completion of a joint EASA/FAA certification campaign earlier this year. EFVS to 100 ft is expected to be approved for the Falcon 2000LX and Falcon 900LX by the end of the year.

FalconEye is the first head up display to show separate synthetic, database-driven terrain mapping and enhanced thermal and low-light camera images at the same time. This allows the pilot to fly approaches in poor visibility conditions with an unprecedented level of safety and reliability. It is also the first to allow pilots to adjust the split between SVS and EVS imaging areas, providing an unprecedented level of situational awareness to the flight crew in all conditions of operation and greatly reducing the stress of bad weather landings.

The FalconEye option has been available on the Falcon 8X since early 2017 and on the 2000LXS/S and the 900LX since October 2016. The system will also be available on the new Falcon 6X ultra widebody twinjet, which is due to enter service in 2022.

The Falcon 8X’s FalconEye option will later be further enhanced with the addition of a dual head up display configuration that will support anEFVS to land capability, allowing pilots to fly a full approach and land without using natural vision to see the runway. The full approval of this capability is anticipated in 2020.

The FalconEye 100 ft EFVS capability is just the latest of a series of new options and enhancements that have extended the mission capability of the Falcon 8Xsince the ultra-long range trijet entered service two years ago. Others include approval for London City Airport operations, one of the world’s most restrictive airfields; Dassault’s Falcon Sphere II integrated electronic flight bag suite; and FalconConnect, a comprehensive package of broadband communications solutions designed to facilitate the use, management and control of inflight connectivity.
