SD - Satcom DirectThe Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) authority has awarded Skyservice Business Aviation an STC for installation of the Satcom Direct (SD) Data Link Unit (DLU) upgrade on the Learjet 45 type.

SD supported Skyservice through the TCCA STC process, and with the EASA and FAA submissions whose approvals are expected in the second quarter of 2019.

Of the three Skyservice Learjet 45 aircraft, one is already benefitting from the system installation, with the next two scheduled for SD DLU upgrade in early 2019.

Upon completion, the installations will support CPDLC (FANS1/A and ATN-B) compliance to augment operational safety.

Skyservice will use their STC to support other Learjet 45 operators requiring installation which helps retain asset value while optimizing performance.

Paul Weeks, Vice President, Maintenance for Skyservice Business Aviation, said: “Skyservice is one of the first MROs to comply with 9,600/10,000/14,800-hour inspections and has more than 30-years-experience in Learjet maintenance. The SD DLU is a proven product that supports more efficient Learjet 45 operations.
