Local Ottawa Tech Company Important Communication Systems Supplier to Heads of State, Top 40 Musicians, Financial Leaders, and the Entertainment Industry


OTTAWA—24 FEBRUARY 2016—TrueNorth Avionics hosted their 10th anniversary celebration yesterday at the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum. The event which featured the wonderful aircraft collection at the Museum and a number of distinguished guests was a great opportunity to learn more about the company and its 10 years producing aviation communications systems for business jets. 

Mark van Berkel, TrueNorth CEO spoke about the about the company’s history and future, and presented City of Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson with a marketing model of TrueNorth’s Stylus phone. 

“Business leaders, Heads of State and other aircraft owners have a need to be in touch wherever they happen to be,” said Mark van Berkel, TrueNorth CEO. “When we started this company, our goal was to make it easier for these people to do just that, which means they can be better informed, and stay on top of important matters while they have to fly. Since 2006, we’ve continued to develop new connectivity systems for the business jet cabin and flight deck, and looking to the future, turning to the commercial aviation space, to work with key equipment manufacturers. Building this business continues to be challenging and rewarding, and our successes make me excited about the future. I’d like to think that at some point, a majority of aircraft will be flying with TrueNorth systems on them.”
