“[New billionaires in fast-growing countries] have to buy longer-range airplanes. If you’re flying from Mongolia to Nigeria, it’s either a three-day journey flying commercial or a nine-hour flight on your jet.”
Rockwell Collins to Buy SKYLink Broadband
Rockwell Collins is buying Arinc's SKYLink broadband and plans to reintroduce it under its own eXchange brand. According to the agreement, Rockwell Collins will supply the airborne broadband hardware and after-sales support and Arinc will provide the Ku-band satellite service. Arinc will continue to handle SKYLink system sales and
support until the transition to Rockwell Collins eXchange hardware is completed.
