New branding for Get Connected as it joins Simple Flying.

Get Connected was originally founded by Steve Nichols back in 2014. Steve, who has over 25 years experience in the aviation industry commented,

“I set up Get Connected five years ago, just as the inflight connectivity market was hotting up. I covered the building of Inmarsat’s first GX satellite in Los Angeles, was lucky enough to test Gogo’s Ku-band product on a flight out of Stansted airport, and visited Panasonic Avionics GQ in Lake Forest, California. It has been a blast, but it is now time for someone else to take over the reins. I wish Simple Flying all the best for the future of Get Connected as it starts a new chapter.”

“I’m very excited about the acquisition of Get Connected, we don’t cover in-flight connectivity in depth on Simple Flying, so this new site gives us the ability to delve deeper into a very important part of the aviation industry which is forecast to expand in excess of $30 billion by 2035

2019 is so far a very exciting time for Simple Flying, we have recently celebrated our 1st birthday and launched an aviation news app for Android and IOS.
