Gogo Inc. (NASDAQ: GOGO) said it has introduced automatic, in-hangar wireless update capabilities for Gogo Vision in the business aviation market — along with several other new features.
Gogo Vision, selected earlier this year by NetJets, serves up a licensed library of the hottest Hollywood movies and TV shows. It also includes features such as news, a flight tracker, flight progress information, destination weather, screen sharing, in-cabin file transfer and more.
With Gogo Vision, customers have the unique ability to receive fully-automatic content updates via Gogo Cloud, the company´s nationwide content delivery network. The system uses “machine to machine” Wi-Fi technology to automatically load fresh content when the aircraft arrives at a Gogo Cloud location, with no interaction required from the flight crew or maintenance personnel. Gogo Cloud capabilities are already available at select Signature Flight Support facilities and today´s announcement gives customers the ability to bring Gogo Cloud capabilities to their own hangars by installing a simple, no-charge equipment package available from Gogo.
Gogo is a leading global aero-communications service provider that offers in-flight Internet, entertainment, text messaging, voice and a host of other communications-related services to the commercial and business aviation markets. Gogo has nearly 2,400 commercial aircraft equipped with its services on 11 major airlines. More than 6,800 business aircraft are also flying with its solutions, including the world´s largest fractional ownership fleets.
