% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents. News Alert: SIMI VALLEY, Calif., – ( News Alert) – Airborne Wireless Network (OTCQB: ABWN) is pleased to announce that on October 28, 2016 it submitted its application and related documentation with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for initial certification. The application outlines a civilian air-to-air communication system, a first of its kind.

The company’s application cover letter states, “Airborne Wireless Network is making application for a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for a broadband transceiver system to be installed in Boeing 757-200 aircraft. This new patented broadband system will provide light weight, low power, low cost, microwave relay stations on equipped aircraft. The new system provides a chain of airborne repeaters providing communications along the entire flight paths. The purpose of the new project is to replace low-earth orbit (LEO) communication satellites with broadband wireless communications networks linking aircraft to aircraft and ground stations.”

This FAA application is significant as the company intends to expand on this initial certification program to include multiple aircraft types, including all major airframes actively flying in the worlds airline fleets. Read this and other News for ABWN at

Since our system is to be deployed on existing commercial aircraft, and not on unmanned platforms, there are no limitations on flights over populated areas, making it the most affordable and practical way to achieve future global connectivity.

This initial FAA certification has been submitted on a non-interfering basis; meaning that the system will not interfere with existing onboard aircraft systems. Looking to the future, the company intends to cross into the cockpit and provide essential services with true broadband data to the flight crews, the FAA, and airlines. This would enable unprecedented aircraft location services as well as other aviation safety applications independent of satellite coverage.
