The Aircell 51,000 Five award recognizes the five highest-performing organizations in the company’s global dealer & distributor network as chosen by the Aircell Executive Team.

Recipients of the Aircell 51,000 Five award for 2011 are as follows (in alphabetical order):

  • Cessna Citation Service Center – Wichita, KS
  • Duncan Aviation – Lincoln, NE, and Battle Creek, MI
  • Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. – Savannah, GA

Award selection is based on each dealer’s demonstrated commitment to helping customers get the most out of in-flight connectivity, technical expertise, sales performance and other factors.

Representing a pinnacle of achievement for an Aircell Dealer, the award’s name was inspired by the highest altitude reached by aircraft in the business aviation industry – 51,000 feet. Trophies were presented to each organization in a ceremony held this afternoon during the Aircraft Electronics Association’s Annual Convention & Trade Show in Washington, D.C.
