Amac Aerospace selects TrueNorth Simphonē Mobile GSM for VVIP aircraft

Amac Aerospace has installed TrueNorth Avionics’ Simphonē Mobile GSM system on a BBJ 747-8I. The private GSM system enables passengers and crew to use their own phones to text and talk on board without any additional configuration, apps or forwarding service.

Simphonē Mobile GSM is compatible with all quad-band phones and supports wi-fi-enabled smartphones. The system offers GSM services including text and talk and has more than 300 global roaming partners. It was specifically designed for long-range VIP private aircraft. Satcom Direct and Satcom1 are official service partners.

“Installing a system specifically geared toward business and VIP private aviation was an important consideration for us, and our clients,” said Bernd Schramm, chief operating officer at the Amac Aerospace Group.

“It’s simple: people want to stay in touch and they are used to their own phones, with their own contact lists. They don’t have time to load additional apps, they just want to make a call as they would anywhere else. The TrueNorth GSM system has allowed us to bring this simplicity to our customers.”
