With over 1100 aircraft operating with the Magnastar system and a discontinuation of service expiring in December. Operators need to plan their upgrades now instead of later as the number of shops and available equipment will saturate come the fourth quarter of this year and crews will have to explain to the boss why the phone is “out of service”.
Banyan Avionics recently completed an extensive review of the different upgrade paths and favorable discounts being offered by some of the leading vendors in the aviation industry.
To help stimulate operators to not wait to the last second and jeopardize their chance of not getting an installation slot, Banyan is offering aggressive pricing for those operators that upgrade their aircraft in September.
“The Banyan team understands no one likes to down their aircraft to perform an installation and we took the time to study how we can reduce the downtime to a minimum and make sure customers receive the best deal and largest savings offered by the vendors,” stated Brian Wilson, Banyan’s Director of Avionics.
“The Magnastar phone has been a stable system on board these aircraft for over 25 years, but like any technology the time has come to remove this voice only system and upgrade to one that allows Internet, email and voice communication,” says Brian. “Vendors are offering some very sweet deals that allow you to save up to $ 20,000.00.”
