INMARSAT, using a Gulfstream aircraft on a round-the-world trip visiting many places, has demonstrated continuous non-interrupted satellite internet access service, switching seamlessley between some 28 different spot beams and satellites.

The service is called "Global Xpress" and used a Honeywell aero Tail Mount Antenna, hardly visible in the photo below:



I think this is quite amazing and INMARSAT deserve congratulations. It's good news for regular airlines plus all VIP executive and private jets.

Four, Ka band, Inmarsat-5 geostationary high-capacity satellites are linked as one global network.
