PODCAST from GCAS: United Airlines’ Jon Merritt on Flight Operations and Technology

The annual Global Connected Aircraft Summit took place in June and we're highlighting a few outstanding presentations from the summit on the podcast.

One of the topics that always generates a tremendous amount of audience engagement at the Summit is the use of in-flight internet and connectivity by the flight operations and maintenance divisions of commercial airlines. During his presentation at GCAS 2019, Jon Merritt, senior director of flight operations and technology at United Airlines, discussed what United is working on near-term and into the future regarding the use of in-flight internet by pilots.

Next year's GCAS will take place in Denver, Colorado, from June 2-4! Sign up on the GCAS website to stay tuned for ticket and agenda information, coming soon.
