Gogo announces certifications from U.S., Japanese regulators Gogo announced it has received a Supplemental Type Certificate from the FAA and certification from the Japanese Civil Aviation Bureau to install its Ku-satellite based connectivity service on Japan Airlines' 777-200 aircraft. The two certifications are key milestones that pave the way for launching service on JAL, the company said.
Gogo receives FCC regulatory approval for 2Ku In-flight connectivity technology Gogo announced that it has received regulatory approval from the FCC to operate its next generation in-flight connectivity technology – 2Ku. The FCC approval clears a major hurdle in the path to launching the new service. The approval is a blanket approval from the FCC for Gogo to operate its 2Ku system on 1,000 aircraft. Gogo expects the new 2Ku technology will outperform other global connectivity solutions currently available in the market. The new antenna technology is expected to deliver peak speeds to the aircraft of more than 70 Mbps. Gogo expects the new service to be available for the commercial aviation market in the second half of 2015.
