FYI…The in-flight entertainment (IFE) shown in this WSJ report is Thales’ AVANT system. Panasonic also had its next generation IFE system on display in the CSeries mock-up at #PAS11. The dimmable windows, meanwhile, are Vision Systems’ Noctis. I’ll have more on Bombardier’s IFE and connectivity plans for the CSeries later.

Rockwell Collins will tell you that it never really left the world of in-seat audio/video on demand (AVOD). And, quite technically, Rockwell Collins is right.

No sooner do we get word that BlueBox managing director Rick Stuart is leaving the firm, when, lo, a new in-flight entertainment company and system surfaces. Coinkidink? Errr. A splinter group from BlueBox, including Murray Skelton and Martin Cunnison, have formed Intelligent Avionics, and launched AURA, billed as “an ultra-lightweight, next generation IFE system”, which […]
Bombardier’s CRJ programme chief Jean-Guy Blondin takes us inside the brand new 100-seat Bombardier CRJ1000 (deliveries only began last month). My video, shot this week at Bombardier’s Mirabel production facility, will show you Brit Air’s CRJ1000 cabin, the cockpit and even the new bigger toilet! And it includes lots of info about Bombardier’s in-flight connectivity […]
For a company that has said it will base its TopSeries next-generation in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) system on the Android operating platform, Thales chief engineer Ken Brady speaks in glowing terms about the Apple iPad, and admits the firm is looking at how it can springboard off of it. Interviewed for Steve Harvey’s always-interesting The […]
