Co-Founder AirInsight. My previous life includes stints at Shell South Africa, CIC Research, and PA Consulting. Got bitten by the aviation bug and ended up an Avgeek. Then the data bug got me, making me a curious Avgeek seeking data-driven logic. Also, I appreciate conversations with smart people from whom I learn so much. Summary: I am very fortunate to work with and converse with great people.

  1. Don is correct that nobody (including engine and aircraft OEMs) know the value of real-time data from the aircraft. Not sure who and which OEM commented about 60% but that is unsubstantiated and needs further clarification. HTS is the key satellite network design.

    I wonder what the exede (Direct to Home) users think of the Ka service and as ViaSat signs up more aircraft, how will the service to ground users will be affected.
