Aerospace Engineering Solutions (AES Global), the UK-based aerospace design and certification organisation, has obtained a new EASA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) allowing the use of Transmitting Portable Electronic Devices (T-PED) on all Boeing 777 aircraft.
AES has developed this STC for operators to ensure their aircraft fleet is capable of using PEDs safely and securely in all phases of flight.
This EASA STC (No 10065407) can be used by an operator as evidence to meet the necessary European Union regulatory operational requirements for PEDS operating in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency band. It can also be used in combination with a Wi-Fi system activation to allow full use of T-PEDs.
Anton Heissig, director and head of design for AES, said: “Receipt of this EASA certification broadens our ability to offer this solution to customers and reinforces our commitment in the wireless connectivity market.”
