Gogo and ForeFlight enable GPS and other features on ForeFlight mobile application

Gogo Business Aviation and ForeFlight have partnered to bring new GPS location information and altitude to the ForeFlight Mobile iOS-based application for business aviation.

Using an onboard Gogo AVANCE system or an ATG 4000/5000, ForeFlight Mobile can now deliver flight location information throughout the cockpit and cabin using Wi-Fi – it's information typically provided via a separate GPS system that requires additional onboard hardware and antennas.

"Our goal with this initiative was to simplify the overall on-aircraft systems configuration, and reduce the number of onboard systems that passengers and crew are required to interact with and use on a regular basis," said Lisa Peterson, senior vice president of marketing and digital (IoT) for Gogo Business Aviation. "It not only makes operating the aircraft more efficient, it saves a significant amount of time and money for the owner or operator because the aircraft doesn't have to be taken out of service for installation of new antennas or equipment which GPS systems require."

Through this new service, the ForeFlight iOS mobile application on a passenger device can use flight location information – specifically longitude, latitude and altitude – sent to the onboard Gogo system from the aircraft's FMS that is then made available via the cabin Wi-Fi network."

"With this new capability, ForeFlight customers can get position data directly from the Gogo system which provides additional insight for passengers and crew about the aircraft's location," said Tyson Weihs, CEO of ForeFlight.
