Affordable, portable system for in-flight messaging

Many passengers (and pilots) want to stay connected in flight, especially on long trips. Until now, that has required over $100,000 in hardware, weeks-long installation jobs, and thousands of dollars per month in subscription fees. Not any more. AirText is an FAA-approved solution that’s both small enough and affordable enough for use in high performance piston and light turbine airplanes. The LT model in particular is small enough to work in almost any airplane.

Features:

  • Send and receive text messages in flight at any altitude
  • Uses Iridium satellite network, with coverage everywhere in the world – even on the ground
  • Up to 6 users can connect at one time, using Bluetooth
  • Each pilot and passenger has a private account – no sharing text messages
  • Smart software notifies contacts when your flight is over
  • Request and receive METARs and TAFs, anywhere in the world
  • No installation – device is the size of a cell phone and can move between aircraft
  • Free AirText app makes it easy to send and receive messages
  • Measures 4.75" x 3" x 1"

Includes: AirText LT device, zippered carrying case, portable Iridium antenna, and DC power plug.

 

Subscriptions: Data rates are easy and affordable. For just $300/year, subscribers enjoy 500 messages – with no monthly minimum or maximum. After that each additional message is five cents. Subscribing takes just five minutes, and instructions are included in the box.

Great Product
I was searching for a low cost solution for connectivity in the cockpit and didn't want to spend an arm and a leg. This works great. Messages came through quick and I like the fact that I can have my own dedicated number and each person texting cannot see each others messages. The company has been very responsive and really care about their product working well.

what is it?
A shopper on Jun 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This item provides a means to send text messages while airborne.
"Smart software notifies contacts when your flight is over..." How does this work? Better technical description of this feature would be great.
A shopper on Jun 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The hardware communicates with a server at specific intervals. When the server no longer receives the communication from the hardware it sends the text message that the flight is over. The specifics are proprietary.
Is it 500 texts per month or per year or at what frequency?
A shopper on Jun 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is 500 tests per year.
