Bundled with online flight planning, accessible through uvGO

November 16, 2015

LAS VEGAS (Nov. 16, 2015) – At NBAA2015, Universal Weather and Aviation, Inc. announced that it is now offering unlimited, fixed-rate SATCOM and SITA VHF ACARS datalink subscriptions for any business aircraft, regardless of avionics type via a new alliance with Satcom Direct®. The datalink service is provided by Satcom Direct, and subscriptions can be bundled with online flight planning from Universal.

The service is 100 percent integrated with uvGO, a new trip management app also introduced at NBAA. Through uvGO, operators can track the status of their fleet, view aircraft message history, build and file flight plans, and uplink flight plans to the aircraft—without having to use separate apps or websites.

“We’re very excited to now offer our clients access to unlimited datalink for any aircraft they operate, anywhere they fly,” said Denio Alvarado, Senior Vice President, Global Product Strategy, Universal. “Working closely with the team at Satcom Direct, we’ve fully integrated their datalink service into uvGO. Our clients won’t have to switch between different apps or websites to access datalink services—such as aircraft position reporting and messaging—and trip management services provided through Universal.”

Clients who sign-up for a bundled datalink and online flight planning subscription will be invoiced through Universal at a fixed annual rate, along with other services they receive from Universal.
