SmartSky® First-of-Type Installation Completed on CJ4 by Davinci Jets Services

SmartSky today announced Davinci Jets Services has completed a first-article installation of the SmartSky LITE system on a Citation CJ4 aircraft.

The Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the CJ4 is expected to be issued in the second quarter.

The project is the fourth SmartSky first-of-type installation completed by Davinci Jets Services, a full-service MRO and FAA Part 135 charter firm operated by North Carolina-based aircraft management firm Davinci Jets.

The recent and in-progress installations by Davinci are part of a previously announced agreement to install SmartSky’s next-generation inflight connectivity on the majority of the firm’s managed fleet by the end of 2024.

Eric Legvold, CEO of Davinci, indicated that following each installation he looks forward to hearing from users who are enjoying SmartSky’s continuously connected inflight experience for the first time.

“Pilots, owners and passengers are constantly telling us they are astounded by the inflight performance of SmartSky, including connecting as many devices as they want without worrying about diminished performance,” Legvold said.

“After so many years of hearing customer complaints about their inflight connectivity, it’s gratifying to be able to provide a proven solution and hear this kind of feedback,” .

“More customers are moving through Davinci’s pipeline, including both managed and external clients. We have the capacity to increase our pace in order to provide all sizes of business aircraft with the best ATG system upgrade on the market.”
