Elliott readies for Gogo Avance upgrade demand
Technicians at Elliott Aviation will streamline the upgrade process by setting aside dedicated floorspace and labour hours, so there will be less downtime and more flexibility as the network migration deadline approaches.
Elliott technicians will leverage their experience with Gogo inflight connectivity upgrades to streamline the Avance upgrade process, meaning less downtime for operators.

Elliott Aviation is to prioritise Gogo legacy air-to-ground (ATG) to Avance system upgrades as demand increases for maintenance and installation expertise ahead of the LTE network migration.

Elliott is well-versed in Gogo installations, having completed more than 300 during the two companies' 20 year partnership. Elliott was recognised as one of Gogo's top-five installing and certifying dealers in 2020.

To accommodate Avance upgrade demand, Elliott has established a dedicated programme to prioritise Gogo legacy ATG customers through reservations and installation schedules at any one of its five facilities in Moline, Illinois; Flying Cloud, Minnesota; Des Moines, Iowa; Dallas, Texas; and Atlanta, Georgia.

"With unrivalled installation expertise, our technicians will leverage our experience with Gogo inflight connectivity upgrades to streamline the Avance upgrade process," says vice president of avionics programmes Bill Forbes. "By setting aside dedicated floorspace and labour hours, Gogo operators will realise less downtime and more flexibility as the network migration deadline quickly approaches."

More than 3,000 business aircraft are installed and flying with a Gogo legacy ATG system (ATG 8000, 5000, 4000, 2000, 1000) on board, and those aircraft are in a unique position to upgrade to Gogo Avance L3, L5 or LX5 (5G) before the anticipated completion of its LTE network migration in early 2026. Aircraft that do upgrade will experience an immediate improvement in performance with an additional boost when the network transition to LTE is complete.

"We're pleased Gogo customers can rely on one of our gold-level dealers for all size aircraft equipped with a Gogo system for exceptional and timely maintenance services so they can experience the game-changing performance improvements of our Avance system through our technology transformation," says Dave Salvador, vice president of aftermarket sales for Gogo.

Existing Gogo legacy ATG customers can take advantage of current Gogo promotions, offering rebate opportunities of $25,000 up to $50,000 for upgrading.
