“Constant Aviation continues to be a trusted partner with expertise and a sterling reputation of delivering great service to its clients,” said Andy Geist, Senior Vice President of Business Aviation Solutions for Gogo.

“We are pleased to partner with Constant Aviation as we continue to progress toward the launch of our 4G service in 2017, and our next-generation network in 2018.”

Gogo says its 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, fibre backhaul and technology that has already flown hundreds of thousands of hours aboard 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 – all from a single, lightweight box.
