GE Aviation and AT&T Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions have connected the onboard and offboard portions of the aircraft health and trend monitoring system (AHTMS) powered PlaneConnectHTM on the Gulfstream G500, G600, G650 and G650ER business jets.

The AHTMS continuously acquires aircraft performance data to help identify problems before they occur and is designed to assist in troubleshooting difficult to diagnose issues.

“Our focus is to help our customers and the overall industry to be more efficient,” says Darin DiTommaso, VP of digital services and solutions for GE Aviation. “This system improves an already great track record at Gulfstream. The beautiful part about the system is that it will continue to grow and respond as the needs of each fleet change throughout their lifecycle.”

AT&T president Chris Penrose adds: “IoT Solutions has the potential to significantly transform the operational efficiency of any industry. It is exciting to see that our work with GE Aviation is offering operators better visibility into aircraft health and reducing expenses.”
