Gogo Business Aviation Introduces ATG 1000 Connectivity System
Gogo, a leading provider of in-flight connectivity and entertainment solutions to the global aero market, announced the ATG 1000 – a new connectivity system particularly well-suited for light jets, turboprops and owner-flown aircraft. Via the Gogo Biz network service, the ATG 1000 enables high-performance e-mail with attachments and calling and texting with passengers’ own smartphones and mobile numbers. The ATG 1000 is software-upgradable, which gives customers the unique ability to add connectivity features – such as web browsing – at any time, simply by purchasing a software key. Beyond passenger use, in-flight connectivity continues to grow in popularity among flight crews. In the future, the ATG 1000 is also expected to support select cockpit and operational applications. Originally launched for the business aviation market in 2009, the Gogo Biz network service utilizes Gogo’s unique air-to-ground technology, providing service coverage throughout the continental U.S. and portions of Alaska and Canada above 10,000 feet.
