“With their experience in serving some of the world’s most demanding aircraft operators, we’re delighted that Jet Aviation has chosen TrueNorth as their airborne telecom partner,” said Mark van Berkel, TrueNorth’s president and CEO. “And while our systems have demonstrated an industry-leading level of reliability, we’re equally proud that Jet Aviation has recognized that our commitment to performance, product quality and customer satisfaction is as strong as their own,” he added.

A revolutionary software-centric system, the Simphone¯ (pronounced ‘symphony’) OpenCabin system brings an unprecedented degree of reliability, operator control and communications capabilities to business aviation.
