Duncan to modify Avance L5 STCs to include Gogo 5G
Once Duncan has modified the STCs, operators who have the Avance L5 Wi-Fi system already installed will have the foundation required to allow them to upgrade to Gogo's 5G network.

MRO provider Duncan Aviation is currently providing engineering and certification services to Gogo Business Aviation for the completion of the first-article STC for the Gogo 5G system.

Duncan will use the experience and data from certifying the first article to modify all of its full-equipment Avance L5 STCs to include Gogo 5G, which will cover a wide range of Bombardier, Gulfstream, Dassault and Textron aircraft. Additional models to add to the programme are also being evaluated by Duncan Aviation and Gogo.

Operators who have the Avance L5 Wi-Fi system already installed will have the foundation required to allow them to upgrade to Gogo's 5G network.

Duncan says its STCs have been used for more than 265 installations of the Avance L5 system and once the 5G STCs are complete, it will perform the installations at its full-service facilities in Battle Creek, Michigan, Lincoln, Nebraska, and Provo, Utah, in addition to its more than 26 satellite shops.

“The STC portfolio we're partnering with Duncan Aviation on for Gogo 5G is extensive and will ensure that we can provide a significantly enhanced inflight connectivity experience for passengers,” says Sergio Aguirre, president of Gogo Business Aviation.

“The Avance L5 system has been so popular with our customers that we are focusing our ATG certification and sales efforts on Gogo systems,” adds Jeff Lake, president of Duncan Aviation. “Our experience in the initial certification and having partnered in that installation allows us to provide more comprehensive details to operators so they can best schedule and budget for 5G for 2022 and beyond.”
