L2 Consulting Services, Inc. Receives STC for the Installation of Cobham AVIATOR SATCOM System on Hawaiian Airlines 767-300 Series Aircraft for FANS 1/A+

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Jun 9, 2015) -  L2 Consulting Services, Inc. (L2) announced today that the company has received an FAA approved Supplemental Type Certificate (ST11187SC) for the installation of the Cobham SATCOM AVIATOR SwiftBroadband (SBB) Satellite Communications System on Hawaiian Airlines 767-300 series aircraft, using Inmarsat's ACARS Ground Gateways (AGGWs) to carry FANS/ACARS safety messages. L2 was originally awarded the contract in October of 2014 to develop integration engineering, produce installation kits and provide certification and project management for the program. Additionally, L2 provided remote installation services for the installation of the Cobham system.

L2 President, Mark Lebovitz, said, "I am extremely pleased with the L2 team for executing this program on schedule while meeting all customer and regulatory expectations." He added, "Hawaiian Airlines operations will now support the FAA initiative to further evaluate this new safety service over the Pacific Tracks." Mr. Lebovitz also stated, "We are motivated to support improved aviation safety services, so we developed an STC to approve the new high speed Inmarsat datalink and position reporting communication option."

The AVIATOR SATCOM System is a standalone satellite voice, data and communications system that uses Inmarsat's SwiftBroadband Services. Overall the system is intended to support the FAA's PARC CWG (Performance-Based Operations Aviation Rulemaking Committee Communications Working Group) initiative to evaluate communication technologies that are expected to be viable in meeting the needs of the airline community.

The system is capable of providing both voice and data communications, including Air Traffic Control Communications, with the addition of many enhanced features such as immediate aircraft tracking information and Ethernet ports for connecting devices like Aircraft Interface Devices (AIDs) and Electronic Flight Bags (EFBs) for the pilots to obtain real-time information, including graphical weather updates. The connectivity will facilitate dynamic routing to favorable winds and away from unfavorable weather
