The G150 is equipped with Gogo Biz inflight wifi from Gogo Business Aviation; making it one of only a few wifi enabled charter aircraft in North America.

 “We are very pleased to offer our customers not only the new G150 in our fleet of aircraft, but also glad to provide them with wifi capabilities through Gogo Business Aviation,” said CATS Chief Operating Officer Kevin Heitman. “Partnering with Gogo Business Aviation on our first G150 powered with wifi is a significant value added service for our customers.”

 The WiFi enabled G150 will enable customers to browse the internet, read email and stay connected while in flight.

 John Wade, Gogo Business Aviation’s Executive Vice President and General Manager, said, “With travelers living increasingly-connected lives, in-flight Internet has quickly become a must-have amenity in the charter market. With Gogo Biz® service being introduced in Canada in 2014, we’re pleased to support CATS and its effort to offer wifi equipped charter aircraft to its customers.”

 The G150 also will give CATS customers a greater range of options; as the aircraft is able to make fewer stops and take longer direct flights.  The G150 has a maximum range of 3,000 nautical miles.

 “At CATS, we strive to meet the needs of our customers by offering competitive prices, a diverse fleet of aircraft, a team of professionals that are dedicated to customer service and investing in technology like the Gogo Biz wifi capability,” said CATS Director of Sales PJ Sharpe.  “Because we are privately held, we are able to remain nimble, offer extremely competitive rates and we control the availability of our aircraft.  We own and operate our entire fleet and are not forced to schedule around aircraft owner approvals like other charter companies.  This gives us a definitive ability to control costs and transfer these savings directly to our customers. We are thrilled to add the G150 to our fleet providing our customers with yet another great charter option.”

 In addition to the G150, CATS has 2 – Beechcraft Premier 1As, and a King Air C90GTx in its fleet of aircraft.
