Gulfstream G450 owners now have another choice for inflight internet service. Viasat announced receipt of a Supplemental Type Certification (STC) for installation of its Global Aero Terminal 5510 on the type.
With over 90 percent of business aviation routes covered by our Ka network, our solution is a great fit for operators that want fast, reliable connectivity that matches the long-range profile of this aircraft.– Claudio D’Amico, Viasat’s business area director, Business Aviation
The G450 is the latest type to gain certification for Viasat. The company can now deliver its Ka-band inflight WiFi service on more than 20 business jet platforms.
Gulfstream G450 aircraft operators can secure Viasat’s Ka-band IFC kit, which includes a custom radome, through Viasat’s extensive MRO dealer network. Service plans are available directly from Viasat or through one of Viasat’s Value Added Resellers and include global and regional unlimited plans for as low as $9,995 per month that feature uncapped data coupled with Viasat’s popular “No Speed Limit” Ka-band IFC. Additionally, among other options, there are entry-level service plans newly available, including a $2,795 per month regional plan that delivers Ka-band connectivity at a significant value.
Today, Viasat’s Global Aero Terminal 5510, the innovative hardware kit that enables high-speed, broadband in-flight connectivity, communicates with Viasat’s Ka-band satellite network, and will be forward compatible with the Company’s next generation ViaSat-3 constellation, a trio of satellites expected to be the highest-capacity broadband satellites ever launched.
