Aero Center Atlanta Joins SmartSky® Dealer Network

SmartSky, provider of inflight air-to-ground (ATG) connectivity for business aviation, announces that Aero Center Atlanta has joined the SmartSky dealer network as a sales and installation partner. With seven FBO locations across the U.S., Aero Centers is a full-service management, charter and FBO provider, which also offers Part 145 maintenance services, including connectivity upgrades for business aircraft, at the Atlanta location.

“Our growing, nationwide company is proud to strengthen our offerings with SmartSky next-generation inflight Wi-Fi,” says Dan Lane, vice president of Technical Services for Aero Centers. “Aero Center Atlanta offers deep maintenance expertise with all sizes of aircraft. Because the SmartSky LITE™ system is geared toward light jets and turboprops, it is a particularly strong asset for connecting this class of airframes that has not previously had a streaming-level solution. Our sales and installation teams are excited to offer the significant upgrades to passenger experiences delivered by SmartSky’s proven connectivity.” 

Opened in 1965, Aero Center Atlanta is the “crown jewel” of its FBO portfolio and the only full-service, integrated FBO at the DeKalb-Peachtree Airport (KPDK). Offerings include full Part 145 maintenance services. Its top-of-the-line upgrades include SmartSky Flagship™ for mid- to large-cabin aircraft, along with the award-winning SmartSky LITE™, a 2024 Aviation Week Laureates award recipient, due to its ability to bring unprecedented inflight Wi-Fi performance to smaller business aircraft. 

“Aero Centers is an ideal partner for SmartSky because of their commitment to providing premium customer experiences through their charter, management, FBO and maintenance operations. Their wide-ranging expertise and focus on expanding their capabilities and geographic reach have earned a stellar reputation in the industry which is now further strengthened by the ability to deliver SmartSky premium connectivity to customers,” says Aria Bahawdory, director of MRO Account Management for SmartSky.

SmartSky’s roster of certified aircraft for the SmartSky Flagship™ and SmartSky LITE™ systems is growing; a list of SmartSky STCs, current and in progress, can be found at
