CPDLC (Controller Pilot Data Link Communication) is an air/ground data link that enables the exchange of text messages between controllers and pilots. CPDLC complements traditional voice communications, providing pilots and controllers with an additional communications medium. In this way CPDLC improves the safety and efficiency of air traffic management by introducing data link services for the single European sky. The European mandate for this modification is February 2020.

Working with Honeywell's new JetWave™ Ka band system, StandardAero has completed an STC for Falcon 900/B/C/EX and Falcon 50 series aircraft. The multi-model STC for the new Honeywell JetWave Ka band Satcom System was fitted for a Falcon 900EX operator. In addition, required documentation has been submitted for EASA validation.
Carlisle Interconnect Technologies, in a partnership with Saint Gobain Performance Plastics, now offers a complete ARINC 791 solution for Ka- and Ku-band SATCOM installations. The complete package contains everything required for either retrofit or forward fit installations on large jet aircraft. Installation fittings are adjustable to cover the complete range of aircraft frame spacing while providing discrete interface loads to the fuselage. The aerodynamic fairing follows the fuselage curvature without requiring a large installation doubler, sealants, or fasteners through the aircraft skin.
RUAG Aviation holds the EASA STC for the installation of the Garmin GTN 750 advanced touchscreen solution in Piaggio P180 Avanti cockpits. This gives RUAG Aviation’s customers a unique advantage, enabling them to significantly modernise their aircraft’s avionics.
