The appeal of connectivity — for every industry — is having data at your fingertips. Over the years, the aerospace industry has developed methods for bringing on-demand information availability to both passengers and operations for commercial and business flights. From maintenance, to pricing, to communication, to in-flight entertainment and beyond, the satellite and aviation industries have converged for global connectivity.

But there are still best practices, market lessons, technological improvements and business models that need cultivating to reach maximum efficiency and capability. That’s where the Avionics and Via Satellite Global Connected Aircraft Summit comes into play.

From June 7 to 9, professionals representing a wide range of companies and interests are invited to participate in the summit, taking place in Arlington, Virginia, at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View. The editorial staff of both Avionics and Via Satellite have worked with industry experts to design three days of comprehensive information sharing. Topics on the agenda include airline business models, cockpit upgrades, telemedicine, satellite bandwidth and alternative industry perspectives.

Speakers from Netflix, Facebook, Honeywell, Gulfstream, ViaSat Inc., Gogo, Air France and more plan to share their experiences and ideas during keynotes, presentations and panels. Breakout sessions give attendees the chance to customize their learning experiences, be it satellite, aviation, operations or security. The agenda also includes networking breaks and receptions, encouraging further collaboration and relationship-building outside of sessions.

There is still time to register, although spots are limited. If you are not able to make it to the summit this year, keep up-to-date on discussions with Avionics and Via Satellite online articles. Click here for more information on the Global Connected Aircraft Summit.
