Gogo's Avance L5 tops half a million flights
Avance L5 is the widely adopted broadband connectivity system from GoGo. Customers say it is delivering 2-7+ Mbps speeds, and at the end of September, 2,237 business aircraft had received the L5 or L3 system.

Gogo Business Aviation's Avance L5 has now flown on more than 500,000 flights since it launched in August 2017.

"Demand for connectivity continues to be very high, and the Avance L5 and Gogo Biz 4G network are delivering a great experience for customers who are doing data-heavy activities while in flight," says business aviation president Sergio Aguirre. "Avance L5 continues to deliver, meeting the ever-increasing needs of our growing customer base."

There are currently more than 1,500 aircraft flying with an Avance L5 system on board, and across the half a million flights that have been flown with L5, 273.7 terabytes of data have been consumed.

Across Gogo's systems, flight counts on Gogo-equipped aircraft continue to grow, with third quarter 2021 flight counts up 24 per cent compared to the pre-Covid third quarter of 2019. Also in the third quarter of 2021, Gogo saw a 78 per cent increase in megabytes consumed per day on its network and a 44 per cent increase in megabytes per flight as compared to the third quarter of 2019.
