Pro Star completes PC-24 Avance L5 installation
Pro Star Aviation was able to complete a Gogo installation in under two weeks. The company has a team of in-house engineers and a DER, which allowed it to create a custom engineering package.
Chris Mancini, director of maintenance, returns the PC-24 to its customer.

Pro Star Aviation, a US aerospace modification facility based at Manchester Boston Regional airport in New Hampshire, has recently completed the first installation of the new Gogo Avance L5 into a Pilatus PC-24 aircraft. The Gogo Avance L5 was an upgrade from the factory installed ATG-2000, delivering high-speed 4G aircraft connectivity enabling passengers and crew access to video streaming, web/email and voice/text.

Pro Star Aviation was able to complete the installation in under two weeks using FAA approved data. The company has a team of in-house engineers and a DER, which allowed it to create a custom engineering package specifically for the PC-24 aircraft.

The Gogo Avance L5 is a single unit configuration with a 4G network that allows for up to 40 devices to connect simultaneously. The Avance L5 provides broadband connectivity to keep passengers and crew connected while in the air. Browsing and secure connections such as corporate VPN access, adds value to the aircraft.

Business development manager Jeff Shaw states: “The connectivity requirements of our customers and the connectivity equipment options are ever changing. Even though the PC-24 is a new aircraft, Pro Star Aviation was still able to enhance the aircraft by installing the latest most powerful connectivity solution available for this class of aircraft.”
