EMS Sky Connect receives FAA certification for Forte inflight phone

EMS Sky Connect, a division of EMS Technologies Inc has received a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from the FAA for its Forte inflight phone. The STC authorises installation of the phone system on Gulfstream G-IV aircraft.

“There is an undeniable market need for an affordable and feature-rich flight phone,” said Wiley Loughran, EMS Sky Connect’s senior vice president of sales and marketing. “We are meeting that need with the right product during these challenging financial times.”

EMS Sky Connect says the Forte phone system delivers full inflight functionality, including email access, for less than US$20,000, with global coverage through the Iridium network. The Forte system features a variety of dialling options, including compact wireless handsets, integrated cockpit headset diallers, and standard corded handsets featuring noise cancellation.

During a promotional period, EMS Sky Connect is offering voice service plans that allow users to prepay for Iridium airtime from US$1 per minute.
