AES Global achieves certification for transmitting portable electronic devices on Boeing 777


Aerospace Engineering Solutions Global has obtained a Supplemental Type Certificate for an operator’s Boeing 777 that allows passengers and crew to use portable electronic devices operating on 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands during all phases of flight

The Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from EASA covers Transmitting Portable Electronic Devices (T-PED) on all of the operator’s Boeing 777 aircraft models and can be tailored for other operators said Aerospace Engineering Solutions Global (AES Global).

Anton Heissig, director and head of design for UK-based AES Global, said, “Receipt of this EASA certification broadens our ability to offer this solution to customers and reinforces our commitment in the wireless connectivity market.”

EASA STC (No 10065407) can be used as evidence to meet the operational requirements of AMC1 CAT.GEN.MPA.140 (Reg (EU) No 965/2012; Part-CAT) and AMC1 NCC.GEN.130 (Reg (EU) No 965/2012; Part-NCC) for portable electronic devices operating in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency band.

It can an also be used in combination with a Wi-Fi system activation to allow full use of T-PED’s.

AES Global designs and integrates engineering modification programs on commercial aircraft for airlines and aircraft leasing companies worldwide.
