Airborne Communications Are One Of The Strengths Of Business Aviation
At NBAA2014 ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell, checked in on the world of airborne communication. There was a time in aviation when the expression, “aviate and communicate” had something to do with an emergency situation. Now, when it comes to executive travel in a corporate jet, it means something completely different. Business travelers need to communicate and that’s where Gogo Business Aviation comes into the picture.
Jim stopped to talk with Gogo Business Aviation executive vice president and general manager, John Wade, to ask about this high tech business that business travelers don’t want to do without. Wade said that broadband interconnectivity is what business travelers expect and, among other things, that’s what Gogo gives them.
Wade said that more than 5,000 business aircraft now have Internet connection but that’s not where it stops. They are also working to speed up data connections with air travelers to meet the demands of quick-based businesses. Gogo is now working on technologies that will provide airborne data service on the same level as high speed ground service.
This video goes on to explain other innovations and gives us a view into the future as to what we can expect. Tune in to see some interesting insights into the future of airborne data links and communication.
