Gogo Business Aviation is partnering with Alamo Engineering to develop a European STC for the Gogo Galileo HDX antenna for Cessna Citation Latitude midsize jets.

“The Gogo Galileo solution for midsize and smaller aircraft is unique. It will finally provide a true broadband service to those aircraft that fly in Europe and globally,” says Joerg Gorkenant, general manager for Alamo Engineering. “We are pleased to partner with Gogo to develop this STC that will bring unmatched, high performance inflight Wi-Fi to Latitude operators around the world.”

The STC for the Latitude will cover nearly 400 total aircraft in operation today worldwide.

This will be the fourth STC for the HDX Gogo Galileo system. Other European STCs include the Cessna Citation 525 series of aircraft, encompassing the CJ1, CJ2, CJ3 and CJ4, and the Embraer Phenom 300 through EASA. All of these STCs will be validated with other aviation authorities worldwide.

Alamo Engineering will be a key strategic partner for Gogo as we expand internationally and bring Gogo Galileo to market,” says Shuaib Shahid, head of international sales for Gogo Business Aviation. “We will rely on its expertise as a Design Organisation partner and will continue to leverage its domain expertise with EASA as we develop additional STCs together in the future.”

Gogo Galileo will operate on the Eutelsat OneWeb enterprise-grade Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO) satellite network, which is fully deployed, and Gogo is now accepting purchase orders for the new service.

In June, Gogo will be installing the Gogo Galileo HDX system on its Bombardier Challenger 300 testbed and will begin flight testing this summer.
