RUAG MRO International has completed the first installation in Europe of the GoGo Avance L5 system on a Dassault Falcon 900DX during its 2C inspection, at its authorised service centre in Geneva. The upgrade was fulfilled in line with EASA standards. The wi-fi-based communications solution ensures 4G connectivity across up to 40 personal devices for streaming, in-flight entertainment (IFE) and business.

RUAG achieved the installation the GoGo Avance L5 system on the basis of an STC designed by Dassault Falcon Jet Corp and validated for this project by EASA. “Our Falcon customer required full and seamless connectivity, for the broad selection of business and entertainment applications across various devices, at any given time,” explains general manager at Agno Stephan Woodtli. “The GoGo Avance L5 system quickly became the solution to these exacting expectations.” The one-stop shop project was a joint effort of the avionics specialists in Lugano-Agno and the Dassault authorised service centre in Geneva.

The connectivity and communications platform is lightweight and features the advanced 802.11ac dual-band router (5GHz & 2.4GHz) that maximises bandwidth, dynamic, multi-bearer data and voice management, and offers the ability to connect with Gogo Biz/Gogo Biz 4G, Iridium Inmarsat SwiftBroadband, and Inmarsat Jet ConneX bearers. The GoGo Avance L5 system installation was part of a more extended and complex cabin upgrade project focusing on modernisation and enhanced comfort. The customer opted for a complete cabin interior refurbishment of wood, leather, and carpeting that also included the integration of an IFE system. The accompanying cabin acoustic and thermal insulation improvement was also the first installation of its STC in Europe.

“This latest achievement underscores our dedication to our business aircraft customers as we continuously strive to offer the latest in technology to enhance comfort and relaxation on board their aircraft,” states Geneva ASC general manager Pio Ming. “The best solutions stem from longstanding relationships with OEMs, like Dassault Falcon, where we all benefit from their established experience in the industry. In fact, RUAG has continued to be a Dassault Falcon authorised service centre for over 31 years,” adds Volker Wallrodt, senior VP of business jets, Dornier 228 and military.
