Gogo has received a supplemental type certificate from the FAA to begin installing its Ku-satellite network on Boeing 747-400s, the in-flight connectivity provider said Monday, Dec. 2. 
The new service will undergo testing immediately, with the first service offering scheduled for deployment by the first quarter of 2014. 

"This is a major milestone for Gogo as a company as it is a big step in clearing the way for international service," said Michael Small, Gogo's president and CEO. "We are proud to offer a consistent global connectivity experience anywhere our customers fly; whether it's on regional aircraft, domestic mainline aircraft or these Ku-equipped 747s that travel around the world."
