CLAIMS
What is claimed is:

1. A system for providing data in-transit to a mobile platform using a portal, the system comprising:
an interface for connecting to the portal to access in-transit data from the portal; and
a content management system providing data from at least two sources for use in-transit with the mobile platform, and wherein one source is on-board the mobile platform and the other source is remote from the mobile platform.

2. The system according to claim 1 wherein the content management system comprises:
a remote component for providing real-time data to the portal from the remote source as requested by in-transit users of the mobile platform connected to the interface; and
an on-board component for providing stored data to the portal from the on-board source as requested by in-transit users of the mobile platform connected to the interface.

3. The system according to claim 2 wherein the on-board component and remote component each comprise servers, and wherein the system further comprises a user device for connecting to the interface to access data.

4. The system according to claim 3 wherein the on-board server further comprises an updateable storage device for storing predetermined data.

5. The system according to claim 4 wherein the updateable storage device is configurable to dynamically receive updated information at predetermined time intervals.

6. The system according to claim 3 wherein the mobile platform is an aircraft and the control is configured to automatically provide data relating to the flight destination to the user device from the sources.

7. The system according to claim 2 further comprising a communication system in combination with the remote component for transmitting and receiving real-time information using satellites.

8. The system according to claim 2 further comprising a user device for connecting to the interface to access selectable data as requested by a user.

9. The system according to claim 8 wherein the user device is adapted for web-based communication and the real-time information emanates from the Internet.

10. The system according to claim 9 further comprising a user database for storing user preferences and wherein the in-transit data accessed using the interface is determined in part by the user preferences.

11. The system according to claim 1 further comprising a plurality of modules for selectively accessing the in-transit data.

12. The system according to claim 1 further comprising tracking means for use in determining user patterns relating to accessing the in-transit data.

13. A portal for providing data in-transit to a mobile platform for access by a user having a device adapted for receiving the data from the portal, the portal having a plurality of predefined categories of data content and comprising: a navigation element for selecting data content from one of the plurality of predefined categories;
a plurality of selectable modules for accessing specific data content corresponding to each of the predefined categories; and
a plurality of customizable elements for selecting user defined data content.

14. The portal according to claim 13 wherein the navigation element is configured for access within each of the plurality of predefined categories of data content.

15. The portal according to claim 14 wherein the plurality of selectable modules comprises visual modules for selecting specific data content.

16. The portal according to claim 15 wherein the visual modules are configured for personalization.

17. The portal according to claim 16 wherein the content comprises both predetermined stored data content and real-time data content and wherein the selectable modules and customizable elements are configured to provide predetermined stored data content before real-time data content.

18. The portal according to claim 13 wherein the user device comprises an electronic device having a browser for accessing the portal and the data is configured for transmission to the electronic device depending upon the type of browser.

19. The portal according to claim 13 wherein the data content is provided based upon a user destination and wherein the selectable modules are configured to provide data content relating to the user destination.

20. A method of providing information in-transit to a mobile platform using a portal, the method comprising the steps of:
using an on-board system to provide stored data to the portal for access by a user on the mobile platform; and
using a remote system having satellite communication to provide real-time data to the portal for access by a user on the mobile platform.

21. The method according to claim 20 further comprising the step of using the on-board system to provide data before using the remote system to provide data.

22. The method according to claim 20 wherein the user accesses in-transit data using a device having an interface, and further comprising the step of automatically determining the type of interface.

23. The method according to claim 20 wherein the mobile platform is in-transit to a destination and further comprising the step of transmitting automatically to the device data relating to the destination of the mobile platform.

24. The method according to claim 20 further comprising the step of transmitting automatically to the device data related to a user selected destination.
