Airtext solves the problem of staying connected electronically to business, friends and family without the high cost of a traditional internet option. Airtext allows 16 passengers the ability to send and receive SMS messages anywhere in the world. On the ground or in the air. Using the iridium satellite network, we have designed a product that allows connectivity through your cell phone while on the airplane.
Using new technology BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) found in modern phones, the passengers open a free application loaded on their phone giving them access to Airtext. The hardware consists of a small “paperback” sized FAA-approved Airtext box weighing about 1 pound that is installed on the airplane and connects to the existing iridium phone antenna found on most airplanes.
