Gogo Business Aviation chalks up 5,000 installed systems
The Avance L5 system has delivered 4G streaming for video and web browsing on 28,000 flights since the start of this year. It will soon be available on 55 business jet platforms.

Gogo Business Aviation has reached a milestone with more than 5,000 systems activated across its Avance and other ATG (air-to-ground) platforms. The company now has nearly 450 Gogo Avance systems, including Avance L5 and L3, flying on business aircraft, which it claims is the fastest adoption of connectivity systems across the broadest range of business aircraft models in the history of business aviation.

“This has been a banner year for Gogo Business Aviation,” says Sergio Aguirre, president of Gogo Business Aviation. “What we've achieved, surpassing 5,000 systems in business aviation, marks the realisation of a dream made possible by hundreds of talented, hard-working and dedicated people. The success of the Avance platform is unprecedented in business aviation and has pushed us to new heights much more quickly than anyone expected.”

Avance L5, which provides bandwidth-intensive activity such as streaming video, video conferencing, email with large attachments and fast browsing, has been on the market for a little more than a year. To date, Gogo has more than 350 L5 systems installed and activated, with an additional 300 that have been shipped, and the L5 system has been used on over 28,000 flights.

Avance L3, which began shipping earlier this year, continues to gain momentum and is expected to reach 100 installations by mid-November, less than one year after launch.

Avance L5 and L3 systems are actively being installed at all Gogo-authorised MROs and aftermarket OEM service centres. Currently, Gogo and its OEM partners and dealers have received type certificate and supplemental type certificate (STC) approvals for Avance L5 from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) across more than 40 airframes. Gogo and its partners are securing STCs for more than 15 additional airframes in the coming months, meaning Avance L5 will be available for installation on more than 55 business jet platforms. For Avance L3, STCs have been secured on seven aircraft models, with another STC being finalised in the coming days.

Gogo Avance uses a software-centric approach that combines Gogo's hardware and software technology to create an integrated, aviation-grade inflight connectivity and entertainment platform. The platform enables connected aviation technologies, services and applications through Gogo's proprietary software and technology.
