On-board texting for up to 16 people
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.
