Gulfstream has received approval from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration for installation of a high-speed, dual internet system on Gulfstream G650 and Gulfstream G650ER aircraft. Provided by Viasat, the system gives customers access to internet speeds that are some of the fastest in the industry. A streaming video service is also available, so customers can stream their favorite high-definition content without compromising connectivity.

“We are pleased to offer this as a retrofit to our current G650 and G650ER customers,” said Derek Zimmerman, president, Gulfstream Customer Support. “With the use of Viasat’s Ku/Ka dual band terminal that seamlessly switches between satellites, we can provide customers with fast and consistent coverage across the world.”

To accommodate the option, Gulfstream aircraft are outfitted with a uniquely designed, space-saving radome. This service can be performed at company-owned service centers in Savannah; St. Louis; Appleton, Wisconsin; Dallas; Long Beach, California; Westfield, Massachusetts; and Farnborough, England, with additional facilities becoming available as needed.

The dual-connection internet service was first available for retrofit on the Gulfstream G550 and the Gulfstream GV in 2019.
