The 525A STC adds CitationJet CJ2, CJ2+ and CJ3 aircraft to a long list of Duncan Aviation STCs for aircraft internet systems.

Duncan Aviation has installed and certified Wi-Fi on a fleet of three CitationJet CJ2+ aircraft, earning the 525A Supplemental Type Certificate (STC).

This STC adds CitationJet CJ2, CJ2+ and CJ3 aircraft to a long list of Duncan Aviation STCs for aircraft internet systems. With completed installations nearing 400 aircraft, Duncan Aviation holds a prominent position as leader of the aftermarket installation of in-flight internet and Wi-Fi upgrades such as Aircell Gogo Biz and SwiftBroadband systems.

“Broadband with Wi-Fi is one of our most requested avionics upgrades, and our continual investment in STCs represents our commitment to our customers,” said Duncan Aviation’s Avionics Sales Representative Andy Fernandes. “Combining the benefits of both our ODA and many locations, we’re able to offer owners a great deal of flexibility as well as the confidence that their aircraft is in the care of the most experienced technicians in the industry and a company known for its service and support.” 

Duncan Aviation has invested heavily in this market. The company owns 13 STCs for broadband with Wi-Fi. The Duncan Aviation Engineering Team completed the STCs under Duncan Aviation’s Organization Designation Authorization (ODA), which includes STC, Major Repair and Alterations (MRA) and Parts Manufacturing Approval (PMA) authority. In addition to the CJ2, CJ2+ and CJ3, Duncan Aviation holds STCs for in-flight Wi-Fi for the following models: Hawker 800A, 800XP, 850XP, 900XP, the Falcon 2000, 2000EX, 2000EX EASy and 900EX, 900EX EASy, the Citation 525A, 680, 750, the Challenger 300, 601-3A/R, 604, 605, Lear 45, Embraer Legacy 600, 650 and the Gulfstream GIV, GV.  

Fernandes says Duncan Aviation is working to amend the STC to include the CJ, CJ1, CJ1+ and CJ4 in the near future.
