Maintenance management and aircraft availability get an additional boost with the Gulfstream-created PlaneConnect program, an onboard, in-flight computer program that monitors aircraft systems and emails maintenance information to operators’ technicians.
To truly deliver an elevated experience in aircraft today, the cabin must include the fastest and most reliable connectivity solutions. Gulfstream offers the industry’s first nose-to-tail data and communications program, with satellite-based networks powered by business aviation’s connectivity authority, Satcom Direct, and on-call technical support for easy troubleshooting.
Connectivity Service ensures travelers stay in touch around the world and pairs those systems with advanced hardware, such as a router with built-in smart technology, to get the most from the voice, text, data and video services.
Customers can bundle connectivity solutions to best meet their needs.
Connectivity Service options include:
This satellite-based system is recommended for those who restrict their connectivity to voice calling, texting, emailing and light internet browsing. The SwiftBroadband service offers maximum data speeds of 432 Kbps and is available globally, except in the polar regions. The coverage area includes even remote parts of China, Russia, India and Brazil. Overlapping satellite coverage results in minimal connectivity interruptions.
This satellite-based system provides connectivity over frequently traveled routes around the world, including transoceanic tracks. The ViaSat service leverages access to several satellites to maximum speeds up to 4 Mbps.
This satellite-based system utilizes new technology that allows for faster and more consistent data speed. The Jet ConneX service offers guaranteed information rates between 1 and 6 Mbps, depending on subscription plan, and maximum speeds up to 15 Mbps. These data speeds give travelers the ability to conduct video conferencing and streaming, from one device, while in flight. The network is available globally except in the polar regions and overlapping satellite coverage results in minimal service interruptions.
Experience Product Enhancements
The increased visibility from GAViS provides pilots better reference points, which improves pilots’ situational awareness and allows them to respond more effectively to changing flight conditions.
Picture this approach: A large-cabin business jet is about to land during a rainy night at Portugal’s Madeira Airport―one of the most daunting runways in the world with jagged mountains on one side, ocean on the other and constantly shifting crosswinds in play.
The world is not flat. So why should a pilot’s cockpit display only be two-dimensional? Seeing accurate terrain representation rather than a simple color-coded representation is a unique safety feature of the Gulfstream Synthetic Vision-Primary Flight Display (SV-PFD).
