The Viasat’s Global Aero Terminal 5510 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.

Claudio D’Amico, Viasat’s business area director, Business Aviation , “Viasat’s high speed and high-quality Ka connectivity is at long last available to Gulfstream G450 aircraft operators. 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.”

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.
