ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the possible success of Louisville, Colorado-based AirCell in its airborne telecommunication service for general and business aviation. The company made the prediction about the success after it won a spectrum auction from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission for air-to-ground communication. AirCell CEO Jack Blumenstein likens the service to Wi-Fi access in earthbound hot spots.
