Take a sneak peak

"As an aviation operator, it’s absolutely critical that you be able to communicate with your crew wherever they are — even if it’s in remote areas with no communication infrastructure.

If you're using a shoddy system that's not specifically built for aviation and that drops out when your aircraft leaves reception zones, you're putting your pilots at risk and leaving yourself open to inefficiency, loss of productivity, and decreased profits." 

Reliable Communications with Your Aviation Crew; Anywhere, Anytime

To make things simple, we’ve grouped the different communications used in the industry into four broad tiers:

  • Radio
  • Higher-level
  • Global Cross-Channel Communication (GC3)
  • Workarounds

The latter contains mostly not fit-for-purpose solutions such as mobile phones on their own or messaging apps meant for ground-to-ground correspondence.
