Operators who lease their business aircraft often find that the amount of data consumed by passengers makes the lease unprofitable, or at least makes it difficult and time consuming to recover the costs. Honeywell has created GoDirect Cabin Connectivity, a mobile app that helps aircraft owners control data usage over satellite communications systems plus accomplish other tasks.
The app can be operated from an online portal or mobile device. GoDirect Cabin Connectivity eliminates the need for third-party support and puts "operators in control of network troubleshooting, access, data consumption, billing and more," according to a press release. The system is also able to troubleshoot connectivity problems.
