L2 Aviation and Software Development Alternatives announce D-Link repair solution
L2 Aviation and Software Development Alternatives team up to provide solution to Spectralux D-Link operators
By: L2 Aviation
When SpectraLux Avionics dissolved in 2022, numerous airlines were left without a repair solution or source for the D-Link Datalink System. With over 300 aircraft in the industry potentially impacted with a diminishing supply of spares, grounding of aircraft was a real risk until now.
In collaboration with Software Development Alternatives, a repair facility with a significant stock of components has been established capable of repairing twenty or more units a month depending upon demand.
"The D-Link system is highly reliable and robust enough to operate for years to come but they do occasionally break and need software updates to remain effective," said Dave Dodson, Founder and President of Software Development Alternatives. "After SpectraLux closed, there was no way to get repairs or updates but through our relationship with L2 Aviation, we can now have a solution."
"We are in a unique position to team up with Software Development Alternatives as the original software developer of the D-Link system and owner of the intellectual property," said Tony Bailey, Chief Operating Officer for L2 Aviation. "Which allows us to take our specialized teams and create an effective and reliable repair for the system which provides numerous global airlines a path to extended life operations of their fleet. For some, they may not understand the importance of this development. Imagine having your aircraft being grounded due to a lack of parts. We are now ensuring a way for operators to prevent a D-Link grounding occurrence. It's a big deal!"
