The Bundle is all backed by 24/7 support and complies with the highest aviation security standards.

“We’ve long recognised that VIP and Head of State aircraft are extremely demanding and a fully-working solution must be delivered the first time,” said Eclipse CEO, Marc Pinault. “Not only do the aircraft have varying missions, individual passengers have different telephony and internet access needs; and of course, on-board network security is key. This is why Eclipse Group is offering a complementary system requirements consultation. Adding connectivity to a large aircraft is complex and we want to help operators, installers and maintainers to get a better understanding of the requirements and outcomes for the aircraft and passengers.”
