Through the efforts of its Connectivity Subcommittee, NBAA is dedicated to addressing the need for improvements in aircraft cabin connectivity. A diverse group of operators (pilots, IT specialists, flight attendants and maintenance professionals) work with manufacturers, training and service providers to develop an industry-wide standard for integrating cabin electronic systems, identify best practices and knowledge to enhance the end user experience.
Establishing a knowledge base for common equipment, performance and serviceability standards are key goals of the subcommittee. Actionable objectives include:
- Developing educational resources
- Facilitating a freeflowing exchange of information with manufacturers and service providers to influence the direction of future developments and support initiatives in aircraft cabin connectivity
- Advance training opportunities for support personnel including technicians, flight attendants and pilots
