[Avionics Magazine 10-06-2016] As Gogo Business Aviation continues toward the scheduled launch of its 4G service in the first half of 2017, the in-flight connectivity company has announced that Constant Aviation will be one of the first Gogo dealers to develop Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) for the new system.

Constant, a full-service Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) Gogo dealer, will develop STCs for Embraer 145 Series Shuttle, Legacy 600/650, Gulfstream V, and Phenom 300 aircraft, and will participate as a partner for hardware sales and installations on other business aircraft.

Created specifically for the business aviation market, Gogo's 4G system is a designed application of Gogo's air-to-ground technology that leverages its existing ground network of more than 250 towers, fiber backhaul and technology. The 4G equipment package will incorporate dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi service and a host of other features.
