Gogo Biz Internet option for Citation CJ4


Cessna has selected Aircell Gogo Biz as option for the CJ4 executive jet

Aircell has announced that
the Cessna Aircraft Company will offer Gogo Biz high-speed Internet capability
as a factory option for the Citation CJ4 beginning in the first quarter of

Gogo Biz enables passengers and flight crews to enjoy high-speed Internet
capabilities above 10,000 feet in the continental US and portions of Alaska, using their own
Wi-Fi enabled laptops, tablets, EFBs, smartphones and other mobile devices.

“We’re pleased to debut
Aircell’s wireless, high-speed Internet capability for the first time ever as a
factory-installed option on a light jet. We’re giving customers complete
freedom and control of their travel time,” said Don Beverlin, who formerly
headed up Cessna Aircraft Company’s supply chain operations and is now Business
Leader for CJ series products. “Whether checking email, connecting to the
company network, catching up on the latest news, accessing ebooks and
magazines, or just surfing the web – we’re stepping up the possibilities. We’ve
worked with Aircell for many years and we continue to believe in their vision.
Their ability to give us a complete range of connectivity solutions, network
services and equipment packages across Cessna’s diverse range of business
aircraft is exactly what we need.”

“Today’s announcement
highlights two significant trends in the business aviation market. First,
connectivity plays an increasingly central role in all of our lives today, and
business aircraft operators fully expect those services to be available when
they fly,” said John Wade, Aircell’s executive vice president and general
manager. “Second, Cessna’s decision to offer a full complement of
voice and high-speed internet services aboard a light jet is another clear sign
that in-flight technology has become smaller, lighter and more affordable.”
