Blue Sky Network’s Advanced Control Head (ACH1000) aviation transceiver is the perfect tool for pilots, operators, and fleet managers around the globe. Working in conjunction with our D1000-series Iridium transceivers, it is the ideal upgrade to add voice and messaging capability to and from the cockpit. The ACH1000 control head integrates with the on-board intercom system, allowing the pilot or co-pilot to easily dial or receive calls directly through the headset. Users can pre-program up to 10 speed-dial numbers, delay, route diversion and weather requests. The crew can also easily receive and read email messages from the iridium transceiver display. Moreover, with the simple push of a Quick Position (QPOS) button located on the ACH1000 display, a message is quickly sent to the SkyRouter portal, key email addresses, and mobile phones.
