The Phenom 300 is the first aircraft from Embraer to receive an FAA approval for an in-service fleet STC for the aftermarket, and is the fifth Embraer aircraft with an L5 solution, joining the Legacy 450, Legacy 500, Praetor 500 and Praetor 600 with service bulletins for the Avance L5 system.
“Gogo's solutions allow our customers in North America to elevate their travel experience with non stop connectivity and inflight entertainment,” says Embraer services and support president and CEO Johann Bordais. “The Avance L5 has been delivering an inflight wi-fi experience that has delighted our Legacy and Praetor customers and we're excited to bring this aftermarket solution to our Phenom 300 customers.”
Gogo Avance L5 connects to Gogo's 4G network, delivering faster speeds and enhanced network capacity and enabling a more robust experience for activities such as streaming video and audio, on-demand movies, personal smartphone use, and real-time data for cockpit apps while in flight. It also provides an easy upgrade path for anyone who wants to add Gogo 5G when the network launches in 2021.
“Embraer's certification of Gogo Avance L5 is further validation of our ability to offer customers the most advanced air-to-ground technology available today and shows the confidence Embraer has in our Avance platform and our 4G network,” says vice president of aftermarket sales David Salvador. “Gogo Avance L5 has been added to aircraft of all sizes and mission types, delivering a robust inflight wi-fi experience, and we're making it more accessible by adding Embraer's Phenom 300 series for the aftermarket.”
