Skyservice Business Aviation has received supplemental type certificate (STC) approval from Transport Canada for the Gogo 5G system on Bombardier Challenger 300 series aircraft.

Skyservice, a Gogo authorised dealer in Canada, completed the certification on 1 September. The comprehensive Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) STC, followed by FAA validation, is available for Challenger 300 operators who install a Gogo Avance L5 today along with the full Gogo 5G provisional kit.

"Skyservice manages one of the largest fleets of Bombardier aircraft in Canada and is also an authorised service facility for Bombardier and a business aviation dealer for Gogo," says president and CEO Benjamin Murray. "We are thrilled to provide innovative, world class 5G service for our clients and customers from around the world looking for data-heavy interactive communication solutions."
