Gulfstream Installs 300th Jet ConneX System

Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. announced that it has now outfitted 300 aircraft with Jet ConneX, the revolutionary inflight broadband service.

According to Inmarsat, owner of the satellite network that operates the Ka-band internet service, Gulfstream has delivered more Jet ConneX-equipped aircraft than any other business-jet manufacturer. Deliveries, which began in May 2017, have included in-production large-cabin aircraft, the G650ER, G650, G550, the clean-sheet G500, which entered service in September 2018, and the all-new G600, which earned type and production certification June 28 from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Nearly half the installations are retrofits.

Jet ConneX is available through Gulfstream’s Connectivity Service. Certified by the FAA and the European Aviation Safety Agency, Jet ConneX transmits at speeds up to 15 megabits per second. 

Recently, Inmarsat announced it would enhance its Ka-band solution with the launch of JX-Pro, which includes unlimited data usage and transmission speeds of approximately 20 megabits per second.
