Textron expands in-flight connectivity for Citations
Having already received STCs for Avance L5 in five Citation models earlier this year, Textron Aviation now also has approval for the Citation X+, Sovereign+ and Latitude.

Textron Aviation has received supplemental type certificate (STC) approval for the Gogo Avance L5 connectivity system upgrade for its Cessna Citation X+, Citation Sovereign+ and Citation Latitude business jets. Aircraft equipped with Gogo Avance L5 will experience faster inflight connectivity speeds and an enhanced network to support on-the-go business needs. This STC expands the company's Approved Model List to include eight Citation business jet models.

“Optimising connectivity across a range of Textron Aviation products is one more way we can enhance the ownership experience,” says senior vice president of global customer support Kriya Shortt. “For many of our customers, the ability to connect twice as many devices and join a video conference call in flight turns travel time into productive office hours.”

Earlier this year, Textron Aviation announced STCs for the Gogo Avance L5 system for the Cessna Citation X, Citation Sovereign and Citation XL/XLS/XLS+. The company has completed nearly 150 Avance system upgrades for Citation customers.
