The Transport Canada STC is available for Challenger 300 operators who install a Gogo Avance L5 along with the full Gogo 5G provisional kit.

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."

Gogo completed construction of the Gogo 5G network in the contiguous United States in October 2022 and is expanding the 5G network in Canada. The full Canadian Gogo 5G network expansion is expected to be completed in 2024.

"The Skyservice Business Aviation team has been a long-standing, valued partner with Gogo," says David Salvador, vice president of aftermarket sales. "We're excited to see its continued investments that will bring Gogo 5G certification to the Challenger 300 series, ensuring a great inflight connectivity experience today and well into the future."
