CabinACe Cabin Wireless Access Point (CWAP) and CabinPinnacle Server were Granted VSTC Approval from the Civil Aviation of China (CAAC)
In keeping with the company’s ongoing commitment to the Chinese aviation market, Telefonix PDT™ is proud to announce the successful completion of a Validation of Supplemental Type Certificate (VSTC) from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) for its CabinPinnacle™ Server and CabinACe™ CWAP. This VSTC for the Boeing 737-700/-800/-900/-900ER is a continuation of the certification efforts that Telefonix PDT announced at the end of 2016.
Since the early 1990s, the Telefonix PDT team has had numerous long-standing relationships within the Asia-Pacific region, and has built an extensive network of partners and suppliers. This VSTC is just one piece of the company’s current strategy to expand direct offerability of its Summit™ line of In-Flight Entertainment and Connectivity (IFEC) hardware within China. As previously announced, the company is also poised to begin manufacturing and repair services managed via its soon-to-launch Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprise (WFOE), Huizhou Telefonix Technology Co., Ltd.
“Our commitment to the growing aviation market in Asia is unwavering,” said Alan Manns, Director of Aviation Business Development at Telefonix PDT. “Together, with our partners in the region, we are able to support all aspects of IFEC hardware delivery. This is an exciting step towards our first Summit line installation in China.”
This new VSTC is part of the overall Summit line certification portfolio that includes the STC for Boeing 737-700/800/900 aircraft and the Airbus A320. The Telefonix PDT certification efforts are still underway for additional aircraft types and the remaining Summit line products including the CabinEdge™ Content Loader.
