Aerospace Engineering Solutions (AES Global), a UK based aerospace design and certification organization, has obtained a new EASA Supplemental Type Certificate to allow the use of Transmitting Portable Electronic Devices (T-PED) on all Boeing 777 aircraft models.
Following an intense certification effort, AES Global has developed this STC for the operator to ensure their fleet of aircraft is capable of using portable electronic devices safely and securely in all phases of flight.
This EASA STC (No 10065407) can be used by an operator 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-PEDs.
“Receipt of this EASA certification broadens our ability to offer this solution to customers and reinforces our commitment in the wireless connectivity market,” says Anton Heissig, director and head of Design for AES Global.
