"Gogo's operational capabilities are second to none. Whether that's navigating the regulatory environment, installing equipment on a wide range of fleet types or servicing those aircraft wherever they might fly around the globe, we've built an organization around operational excellence that's unmatched in the industry," said Michael Small, Gogo's president and CEO.

In addition to a record number of installs in 2015, Gogo has also grown its awarded backlog of 2Ku aircraft to more than 800 aircraft. The company is ramping-up installations and expects to have most of those aircraft installed by the end of 2018.

"I couldn't be more pleased with the performance of 2Ku. 2Ku's position as the premiere technology for global aviation is playing out in the market. We've been getting a great reaction from global airlines as they fly and experience this proprietary solution."

Across commercial and business aviation, Gogo operates more than 11,000 connected aircraft systems all over the world.
