“"Many years ago, our company founder, Al Conklin, sold a new twin-engine business aircraft to a very successful entrepreneur. He had established a bit of a rapport with the individual and, after the sale, asked him straight out, 'How can you justify the cost of this airplane?' His reply? 'What is the cost of a divorce?'"–David Wyndham, president, Conklin & de Decker”
Users of eXchange Broadband Need Not Despair
Rockwell Collins will be able to continue providing satellite broadband network service to its eXchange business aircraft customers. The move comes thanks to a deal with Arinc that will bring eXchange into the SkyLink satellite network. The agreement fills the void left when Boeing announced earlier this year that it is discontinuing its Connexion satellite communication service, which had handled the eXchange traffic. The shift to SkyLink will allow eXchange subscribers access to data transfer and Ku-band satellite television programming.
