West Star Aviation named as dealer for SmartSky 4G


West Star Aviation has been named as an authorised dealer for SmartSky 4G equipment sales and installation

When the SmartSky 4G network takes flight later this year, West Star Aviation will participate as an authorised dealer for hardware sales and installation of SmartSky’s innovative technology.

The company will sell and install SmartSky equipment across many business jet models using STC licenses obtained from SmartSky’s earliest distribution partners.

Bob Rasberry, CEO of West Star Aviation said: “West Star is pleased to partner with SmartSky in order to continue to provide the latest technologies and services to our customers. In-flight Wi-Fi has become a ‘must have’ in today’s competitive environment and West Star continues to expand capabilities and relationships in order to provide solutions tailored to our customers’ specific needs.”

SmartSky’s patented 4G delivers a secure signal that locks onto each aircraft in the network. Passengers can do it all: stream, chat, text, call, game and videoconference.

Ryan Stone, president of SmartSky added: “West Star Aviation, voted the No. 1 Preferred MRO in the 2014 and 2015 Pro Pilot PRASE Survey, will provide an outstanding avenue for clients to purchase and install SmartSky 4G in a variety of business jet aircraft. West Star’s sales and technical expertise complements the seamless connectivity technology that SmartSky 4G will deliver to customers. This agreement is a natural way to augment SmartSky’s expanding distribution network.”
