ALOFT AeroArchitects to equip private BBJ with Eutelsat OneWeb’s LEO satellite connectivity service



Eutelsat Group has announced that ALOFT AeroArchitects, the Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) experts, has selected Eutelsat OneWeb to deliver high-speed, low-latency broadband connectivity for the ultimate passenger experience aboard their client’s aircraft.

Under the agreement, ALOFT will equip a private BBJ with Eutelsat OneWeb’s revolutionary LEO satellite connectivity service. The service will be facilitated by a new Electronically Steered Array (ESA) terminal being developed by Stellar Blu Technologies and delivered through Eutelsat OneWeb’s distribution partner and connectivity expert, Satcom Direct.

ALOFT is developing a Supplemental Type Certification (STC) for the B737-platform using its internal engineering, certification, and ODA resources, which is now available for purchase by VVIP B737 operators and MROs worldwide.

Eutelsat OneWeb’s low-Earth orbit constellation of advanced satellites will deliver a reliable, high-speed, low-latency connectivity experience which will enable the VIP passengers to remain as productive, entertained and connected with family, friends, colleagues, and social media as if they were on the ground.

“As an innovator in cabin technology integration, ALOFT is ensuring its discerning BBJ customers will experience high-speed internet in the air, no matter where they are flying - just as they do on the ground,” commented Jason Sperry, Head of Business Aviation at Eutelsat OneWeb.

“The low latency that is inherent in our low Earth orbit network, means that principals and passengers will have access to applications for both passenger productivity and entertainment that to date have been out of reach while inflight.”

On signing the agreement, Colby Hall, Director of Integrated Technology at ALOFT said: “Our BBJ customers expect their aircraft to be as comfortable and capable as their homes and offices.

"This expectation now includes high speed connectivity and being able to remain connected through their personal devices - all the time. Thanks to the connected ecosystem that Eutelsat OneWeb and their partners are deploying in the business aviation market, our VIP customers will be connected, entertained and productive like never before - able to work, stream, trade, as they choose.”
