Michael R Truelsen, President at Scandinavian Avionics, commented: "We are very pleased to complete the successful installation and testing of the AVIATOR 300 and to announce the award of the EASA STC on the Boeing 757."

 

Kim Gram, VP Aeronautical, Cobham SATCOM, added: "We are delighted to report this STC for such an exceptionally well-known and versatile aircraft as the Boeing 757. We have many commercial customers already using Cobham antenna systems, but this STC for the Boeing 757 establishes AVIATOR SwiftBroadband as a significant communication option for commercial transport operators.
