DC Aviation Group has been contracted for the upgrade of a Global 5000 with a Gogo Elite Smart Cabin System (SCS Elite), an Inmarsat SwiftBroadband High Data Rate Service as well as a new satellite communication system.

The SCS Elite package is a highly integrated smart cabin system that allows passengers to control the cabin environment with a single interface. 

Daniel Heidrich, Director Sales Technical Services of DC Aviation says: “No other solution on the market delivers the breadth and depth of functionality that SCS Elite does. We are very pleased that this system allows the customers to use their own PID (Personal Integrated Device) to do whatever they choose. This can include checking inflight data, watching a movie, browsing the web and making or receiving a phonecall.

Since 2017 DC Aviation is a full-service maintenance, repair and overhaul provider for Gogo Business Aviation and participates as a partner for hardware sales and installations on various types of business aircraft for Gogo’s portfolio of products.

In addition to the Smart Cabin System, the Global 5000 will also be upgrated with an Inmarsat Swift Broadband High Data Rate (HDR) system that offers significantly enhanced data streaming rates. Furthermore, the aircraft will be equipped with a new satellite communication system.
