In our April/May issue, we travel to Antarctica with Enterprise Aviation Group, go behind the scenes with Air Transat, and deliver an update on the CH-148 Cyclone maritime helicopter!
Latitude technologies has announced the start of deliveries of the SkyNode S200 Iridium-based Satcom system to Pilatus aircraft for the new Pilatus PC-24 business jet scheduled for delivery in 2017. The popular SkyNode Satcom was selected over others, due to its lightweight feature-rich robust design and appealing value.
The SkyNode S200 boasts remote configuration, phonebook, hold, flash and redial functions. There are over 2,000 SkyNode units in operation worldwide making the SkyNode S200 a viable option for nearly any mission.
“We are very excited to start delivering S200s,” said Mark Insley, president, Latitude Technologies. “Moving into 2017, our focus on business jet customers and new products will enhance our OEM [original equipment manufacturer] partnership with Pilatus well into the future.”
The PC-24 is the world’s first business jet to be equipped with a cargo door as standard, with takeoff and landing performance that allows the use of very short and even unmade runways. The jet also boasts a spacious cabin with an interior which can be customized to accommodate individual customer needs.
This is indeed a “Super Versatile Jet”–an aircraft designed for a wide variety of missions in line with specific requirements.
Latitude will be displaying at the National Business Aviation Association annual trade show in Orlando, Fla., from Nov. 1 to 3.
