After two consecutive years of double-digit growth and sales to some of the biggest names in the rotorcraft industry, it’s clear that Sky Connect is a dynamic and growing company on the move.
Blockbuster sales in 2006 to industry heavyweights ERA and Rotorcraft Leasing put Sky Connect on the map, coinciding with the introduction of new products, a significantly expanded sales force, and development of an updated image designed to leverage the company’s solid leadership position in the airborne communications marketplace.
In addition to having West and East Coast U.S. sales offices, the company now has local representatives in Canada, Australia, Germany, Sweden, France, Italy and South America, as well as a dedicated technical services operation in Louisiana. In 2006, Sky Connect received supplemental type certificates (STC) to install its equipment on Bell 206B, L-1, L-3, and L-4 aircraft and Sikorsky S-76 (models A thru C). Additionally, Sky Connect equipment is a standard option for both Agusta and Eurocopter products.
Sky Connect has rapidly earned a reputation for quality products and responsive service. In so doing, the company has become the leading provider of satellite-based voice, data, tracking, and customized mapping solutions for airborne, ground-based, and marine applications in both the commercial and government markets. Sky Connect provides automated flight tracking, using the Iridium satellite network for truly global coverage and full-time mission effectiveness. Aircraft phone systems support headset interfaces and corded or cordless handsets. Sky Connect sells more of these products than anyone else in the industry, and more than 2,000 aircraft around the world are flying with Sky Connect equipment.
Key markets include oil and gas, where Sky Connect is the system of choice, and emergency medical services, where the company has a strong and growing presence.
This focus and ability to customize solutions for any requirement have been keys to Sky Connect’s emergence as the market leader for mission tracking and communications.
Led by a team of aviation experts, engineers and pilots, Sky Connect understands the need for voice, tracking and mapping solutions that work when customers need them.
