Gogo 5G antenna receives STC and PMA
Gogo is on track to launch its 5G service in the second half of this year, having received FAA STC and PMA for its 5G aircraft antenna.

Gogo Business Aviation has received supplemental type certification (STC) and parts manufacturer approval (PMA) from the FAA for its 5G aircraft antenna.

"Receiving STC and PMA for the 5G antenna marks the next important milestone in the development of Gogo 5G," says president Sergio Aguirre. "Our team has been hard at work to bring Gogo 5G to life, and we remain on track and on budget to launch service in the second half of 2022."

The STC for the multi-band belly-mounted 5G antenna was completed by Duncan Aviation on its company-owned Citation 560XLS. In November, Gogo also said that Duncan Aviation is working to complete the first-article STC for the onboard 5G system.

Gogo's authorised dealers and OEM partners are actively pursuing multiple STCs that will certify the Gogo 5G system for installation on more than 30 business aircraft models.

Gogo 5G is expected to deliver around 25 Mbps on average with peak speeds in the 75-80 Mbps range and has been designed to deliver high throughput with very low latency to address the increasing demand for data-heavy interactive services like video conferencing.
