ORLANDO, Fla. Rockwell Collins officials in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, are expanding the availability of the company’s Airshow Moving Map into the business aviation market segment by licensing the mobile application to Gogo in Chicago for business aviation cabin solutions.

Rockwell Collins’ Airshow Mobile has been optimized for Apple iOS and Android devices to deliver real-time flight information to passengers, including these features:

  • Interactive roaming, zooming, and navigation of the globe
  • High-resolution Landsat satellite imagery map set

Rockwell Collins Airshow provides passengers with real-time flight information on stunning, high-resolution maps throughout their journeys.

The Airshow moving map mobile application personalizes the passenger experience, according to Greg Irmen, vice president and general manager, flight controls and information systems for Rockwell Collins. “Working with Gogo gives us another great channel to market for Airshow, and an opportunity for us to help Gogo provide its customers with more options to deliver the information they want,” he says.

Gogo “continues to expand the breadth of third-party applications it offers on business aviation aircraft to provide a suite of services for business travelers,” adds Sergio Aguirre, general manager of Gogo Business Aviation. “Airshow is one of the most popular apps in the market and is a nice addition to our lineup of applications.”

Airshow Mobile will be offered by Gogo in the second quarter of 2017.
