Gogo hits L5 installation milestone
Gogo Business Aviation has built partnerships for more than a quarter of a century with leading OEMs. Such relationships have led to rapid adoption of its Avance L5 system, with more than a thousand units now flying.

Gogo Business Aviation's Avance L5 system is now installed and flying on 1,000 business jets. The milestone comes less than three years after the first installation. In addition to the 1,000 L5 installations, Gogo is nearing 450 fit-outs for the Avance L3. “Our team hit it out of the park with both the Avance L5 and L3 systems,” says Sergio Aguirre, president of Gogo Business Aviation. “And what's so exciting to me is that we still have so much opportunity ahead of us.”

The L5 delivers 4G to business aircraft of all types and sizes, from light jets to the largest global business jets, and provides an economical upgrade path to Gogo 5G when it launches. From the time Avance L5 launched in the fourth quarter of 2017, more than 325,000 flights have taken off with the system on board, flying more than 420,000 hours and 211 million miles, and users consuming 150 million megabytes of data.

“We couldn't have achieved this milestone without the great partnerships we've built over more than 25 years with the market-leading business jet manufacturers, our dealers, and charter and fractional operators,” Aguirre continues. “Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, which has had such a dramatic impact on all of aviation, we continued to see a healthy demand from the market for our Avance systems.”

Gogo and its OEM partners and dealers have also experienced substantial adoption of both Avance L5 and L3 on a retrofit basis with more than 200 STC approvals from the FAA. Both L3 and L5 systems are linefit factory options on the majority of business jets of all types and sizes from the world's largest business aircraft manufacturers.
