Mission: Advance aviation by connecting every aircraft with the most trusted communications services on and above our planet. We are mission-minded, bold problem solvers, who are performance obsessed and work together in extraordinary harmony.
It all began in 1991 at a barbecue joint in Denison, Texas, where company founder Jimmy Ray sketched onto a paper napkin his visionary idea for a telephone system on aircraft.
Through a unique partnership with cellular providers, Gogo began as Aircell, providing analog-based voice communications on private aircraft in North America.
In 2006, Gogo was awarded an exclusive frequency license by the FCC. After securing this spectrum, the company designed, patented, and deployed an uninterrupted cellular-based network across the U.S. to provide broadband Internet services to the aviation market.
In 2008, Gogo made its debut on commercial aircraft, bringing robust Internet access to the skies and transforming the experience for air travelers.
Today, Gogo has more than 2,400 commercial and 6,800 business aircraft equipped with our services across our Air-To-Ground (ATG) and satellite technology platforms. We continue to develop products and services to keep passengers productive, informed and entertained while they're in the air.

Advice to Management
I believe senior management could do a better job with promoting interdepartmental transparency.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Gogo (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.
It was a team interview scheduled with 9 people over two days at two locations. Both interview sessions were approximately 3 hours. I met with various members of the Supply Chain team and associated departments. . The main thing about the gogo process is that it moved quickly and you were definitely contacted when promised. The process moved so quickly it took me by surprise. I finished the interview on Friday afternoon and got the offer on Monday morning.
