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.
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 6 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
Trade bulky flight manuals for one slim, portable, easily updated, interactive tablet―that’s the advantage of PlaneBook, a software program created by Gulfstream pilots and technical writers.
The Gulfstream GIV and Gulfstream GV cockpits leap forward in avionics capability with a PlaneDeck retrofit, which replaces the original Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) primary flight displays with sharper, more vivid Liquid Crystal Display (LCD).
Air travel is safer and more cost-efficient with an enhanced navigation system known as Wide Area Augmentation System-Localizer Performance with Vertical Guidance (WAAS-LPV).
