Milford, OH | November 2013–

Global Aerospace Design Corp. (Global) is pleased to announce the issuance of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) ST03276CH, which approves the installation of the Zodiac Inflight Innovations RAVETM system on the Air Niugini Boeing 767 aircraft.

“Global is privileged to have been a part of this program,” said Rex Nystrom, Vice President of Engineering at Global. “Our focus is on safety and reliability, and we are pleased to accomplish this for Air Niugini by providing their passenger’s access to RAVETM.”

“It was a pleasure working with Global and the other suppliers on this project to provide Air Niugini with a superior IFEC product.  Their passengers can now enjoy a variety of entertainment selections on a state-of-the-art, high-definition display.  RAVE’s proven passenger-centric design goes beyond providing a simple system architecture; Zodiac Inflight Innovations also brings an innovative approach to software development that lowers cost, reduces development times and helps ensure successful product launches”, stated Harry Gray, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Zodiac Inflight Innovations.

This STC is a culmination of several months of hard work and extensive aircraft testing to ensure passenger safety and comfort. This program installed the RAVETM System Control Unit (SCU) into the existing aircraft video control center. This single LRU interfaces to the aircraft systems and loads content to each of the seats, however, each seat is able to operate autonomously during flight allowing for a high rate of reliability and an enjoyable passenger experience. With RAVETM, Air Niugini is better suited to support its growing customer base to enjoy their journey to Papua New Guinea and beyond.
