Rockwell Collins will be able to continue providing satellite broadband network service to its eXchange business aircraft customers. The move comes thanks to a deal with Arinc that will bring eXchange into the SkyLink satellite network. The agreement fills the void left when Boeing announced earlier this year that it is discontinuing its Connexion satellite communication service, which had handled the eXchange traffic. The shift to SkyLink will allow eXchange subscribers access to data transfer and Ku-band satellite television programming.

““When I made the film The Invention of Lying, they gave me a private jet for getting back and forth between New York and London. I thought, ‘I will never use it’ but I ended up using it every weekend. You turn up, right, and the airport is completely empty. I mean, there’s just someone at the desk and then the pilot, who says, ‘Are you ready to go?’ and you say, ‘Don’t you want to see my passport?’ and he goes, ‘Oh yeah, I suppose I’d better.’” ”
