Select Bombardier aircraft gain Gogo 5G connectivity upgrade
Staying seamlessly connected at all times is paramount for Bombardier customers, and the OEM is pleased to be working with Duncan Aviation to provide the latest 5G ATG connectivity solutions for their aircraft.

Duncan Aviation is to install Gogo 5G broadband system, including the provisional installation of MB13 antennas, in Bombardier Global Express, Global Express XRS, Global 5000, Global 5500, Global 6000 and Global 6500 aircraft. Provisional installations on Challenger platforms are expected beginning of 2024.

New customers, or those with Gogo's Avance L5 on board, will be able to instal 5G-enabling MB13 antennas and associated installation kits using the supplemental type certificate (STC) developed jointly by Bombardier and Duncan Aviation at all Bombardier service centres and at Duncan Aviation's facilities throughout the US.

“At Bombardier, we're always striving to provide the best in-cabin experience for our customers. With Gogo's 5G network, passengers will have lightning-fast internet connectivity with higher bandwidth and enhanced streaming capabilities, providing them with an 'in-home' or 'in-office' experience,” says Paul Sislian, executive vice president, aftermarket services and strategy, Bombardier. “Staying seamlessly connected at all times is paramount for our customers, and we're pleased to be working with Duncan Aviation to provide the latest 5G air-to-ground connectivity solutions for our customers' aircraft.”

Designed specifically for business aviation, Gogo's 5G network will be available nationwide throughout the contiguous United States and has started to expand into Canada. This new in-flight connectivity solution can be accessed upon installation of the Gogo X3 line replaceable unit (LRU) and is expected to come to market mid next year. It will markedly improve the in-cabin experience and provide enhanced bandwidth and faster streaming abilities.

Duncan Aviation is proud to offer the most current in-flight connectivity solutions for our customers,” says vice president of service sales Ryan Huss. “We understand the value our customers place on staying connected, so we are excited to be working with our trusted industry collaborators, Bombardier and Gogo, on this programme to bring the next generation of in-flight connectivity to the market.”
