Western Aircraft working on STCs for Gogo 4G service

As Gogo Business Aviation continues toward the scheduled launch of its 4G connectivity service in the first half of 2017, Western Aircraft is developing STCs for the new system.

Western Aircraft, an authorized full-service MRO Gogo dealer, will develop STCs for Gogo’s 4G system for Dassault Falcon 2000 series aircraft, and will participate as a partner for hardware sales and installations on other business aircraft.

The 4G offering will include services such as Gogo Vision, providing movies and TV episodes, a flight tracker, weather reports and additional features; Gogo Text & Talk, which allows passengers to call and text with their personal smartphones and mobile numbers; streaming video and audio; as well as face-to-face conversations with a user’s favorite applications; email with attachments; and web browsing. The network covers continental USA and large portions of Alaska and Canada.

“Western Aircraft remains one of Gogo’s trusted partners with expertise and a long-standing reputation of delivering great service to its clients,” said Andy Geist, senior vice president of business aviation solutions for Gogo.

“As we progress toward the launch of the Gogo 4G service in 2017, and our next-generation network in 2018, partners like Western Aircraft are crucial to ensuring our customers will have our service and experience to bring the system to the market.”

Created for the business aviation market, Gogo’s 4G system is a specially designed application of Gogo’s air-to-ground technology that leverages its existing ground network of more than 250 towers, fiber backhaul and technology that has flown hundreds of thousands of hours on thousands of business and commercial aircraft. The 4G equipment package will incorporate dual-band 802.11ac wi-fi service and a host of other features from a single box.
