Well, it could happen. Here's why.
If you have access to a private jet, or maybe even own one like Donald Trump does,than you'll be glad to know of an effort underway to integrate VoIP calling capability into private jet avionics systems.
VoIP solutions provider Cirilium Holdings is working with diversified technology company Honeywell on a specialized flavor of airborne VoIP - one that unlike some solutions already available today where permitted,would not involve hooking up a headset to alaptop running a softphone application.
As envisioned, the Cirilium-Honeywell VoIP service will interface with Honeywell's already established onboard avionics components that provide air-to-ground satellite communications.
Cirilium will provide the software that will integrate withthe avionics hardware platform already developed by Honeywell.
No delivery date has been specified, but the companies have been showing the solution to various business jet manufacturers and key customers.
But not "apprentices."
