Aircell Announces 2010 Inflight Internet Seminar Series

ORLANDO, Fla., April 8 / PRNewswire / -- AEA International Convention & Trade Show -- Aircell, the world's leading provider of airborne communications, today announced the launch of a new educational series entitled, "Getting Your Business Aircraft Online: The Seminar." Stopping in multiple cities across the United States throughout 2010, the tour will give business aircraft operators a complete understanding of the latest generation of inflight connectivity.

"There has been a wholesale shift in inflight Internet capabilities for business aviation in the past year -- it's an entirely new landscape," said Aircell Senior Vice President and General Manager John Wade. "As part of the natural learning curve with these new capabilities, a great deal of confusion has arisen as various providers attempt to hype the virtues of a single network or an equipment package. What's been missing is the chance for operators to get a balanced, straightforward overview of all three high-speed data networks for aviation -- Inmarsat SwiftBroadband, Ku-band Satellite and Aircell High Speed Internet. This is exactly what Aircell's 2010 Inflight Internet Seminar Series will provide.

"Even with all the advances, there is still not a single airborne network that represents everything to everyone," Wade continued. "In sharp contrast to mobile networks on the ground which are often quite similar, airborne network capabilities can vary drastically. This makes it critical for operators to have a clear understanding of what's available."

Aircell developed seminar content from intelligence gathered from thousands of customer interactions since 2006. Attendees will get answers to the most commonly-asked questions, including:

Wade continued, "People will walk away with a solid base of knowledge -- capable of sorting out their own flight department's needs and ready to have an intelligent conversation with their installation facility. They'll be smart shoppers. Because inflight Internet systems typically involve a variety of company personnel, seminar content was specifically created for a wide range of perspectives. It's as appropriate for executives as it is for flight department managers, maintenance directors and aircraft managers," he concluded.

The current seminar schedule is listed below, with more dates and venues expected to be added throughout 2010.
