    • Gogo had planned today to close a sale of $525M in its junk-bond debut (senior secured notes at 12% due 2022), with funds set to expand its next-gen rollout. That sale's off for now.

    • Gogo (NASDAQ:GOGO) says it's extending service of its wireless content delivery network into new European locations.
    • The expansion should boost service for Gogo Business Aviation customers on the continent. The offering, Gogo Cloud, is available at the Jetex FBO in Paris and will be installed at two FBOs in the UK by the end of August -- all three strategic locations for business travelers.
    • Gogo Cloud's proliferation will allow for automatic content updates when an aircraft arrives at one of the locations, without crew intervention. High-speed transfers mean an entire feature-length movie should take three minutes to upload.
    • The company is also making individual packages available to flight departments that want to convert particular hangars.
