Gogo’s Avance L5 installed on 100th business jet

Inflight connectivity and entertainment solutions provider Gogo Business Aviation has reached the milestone of the 100th installation of its Gogo Avance L5 system after six months.

The installation was recently completed by Constant Aviation on an Embraer Legacy 500 for a Midwest USA-based flight department.

More than 275 Avance L5 systems have been shipped with hundreds of additional systems on back order and scheduled for delivery in 2018. Gogo expects to have approximately 500 installations of the new system by the end of 2018.

Avance L5 systems are being installed at MROs and aftermarket OEM service centers. Gogo and its OEM partners and dealers have received type certificate and STC approvals for Avance L5 from the FAA across more than 35 airframes.

Gogo and its partners expect to secure STCs for more than 25 additional airframes in the coming months, meaning Avance L5 should be available for installation on more than 55 business jet platforms.

“The demand for Avance L5 has been overwhelming,” said Sergio Aguirre, president of Gogo Business Aviation. “The reports we’re receiving from those who are using L5 have been extremely positive and the system is performing as expected. Our mission now is to get our product manufacturing caught up with the demand, and we’re making tremendous progress on that front every day.”

Gogo Avance L5 connects to the Gogo Biz 4G network, and is designed to deliver faster speeds and enhanced network capacity enabling activities including live streaming video and audio, video conferencing, on-demand movies, personal smartphone use, real-time data for cockpit apps, and remote diagnostics and support while in flight.

Constant Aviation has secured STCs for Gulfstream, Cessna, Embraer and Bombardier airframes.

“Flight departments, passengers and owners appreciate both the value and the enhanced inflight connectivity experience the Avance L5 delivers for everyone on board,” said Jay Rizzo, executive vice president of strategic sales at Constant Aviation.

“In addition to the installations completed thus far for Gogo, Constant Aviation has more than 50 Avance L5 installations scheduled before the end 2018.”

“The manufacturers, and our dealers and operators, saw the value Avance L5 could deliver with a proven and reliable network,” said Aguirre. “We are grateful to the maintenance directors and avionics leads who offered aircraft for the STC process.”

Gogo Avance has a software-centric approach that combines Gogo’s hardware and software technology to create a fully integrated, aviation-grade inflight connectivity and entertainment platform.
