In 1991, Jimmy Ray was having lunch in a barbecue restaurant in the small town of Denison, Texas. He made some sketches on a paper napkin of an idea he had for an affordable yet simple telephone system for airplanes. Later that same year, Ray founded a company. And the rest is Aircell history.Using cellular frequencies and off-the-shelf equipment to provide affordable voice and data communications for aircraft seemed a little bizarre when Aircell proposed it over 20 years ago. But vision and perseverance paid off.
