It all began in 1991 at a barbecue joint in Denison, Texas, where company founder Jimmy Ray sketched onto a paper napkin his visionary idea for a telephone system on aircraft.

Through a unique partnership with cellular providers, Gogo began as Aircell, providing analog-based voice communications on private aircraft in North America.

In 2006, Gogo was awarded an exclusive frequency license by the FCC. After securing this spectrum, the company designed, patented, and deployed an uninterrupted cellular-based network across the U.S. to provide broadband Internet services to the aviation market.

In 2008, Gogo made its debut on commercial aircraft, bringing robust Internet access to the skies and transforming the experience for air travelers. 

Today, Gogo has more than 2,400 commercial and 6,800 business aircraft equipped with our services across our Air-To-Ground (ATG) and satellite technology platforms. We continue to develop products and services to keep passengers productive, informed and entertained while they're in the air.
