StandardAero Signs Agreement to Purchase and Stock Gogo AVANCE L3 and L5 Systems
StandardAero signs a volume purchase agreement with Gogo for delivery of AVANCE L3 and L5 systems in March, opening up more availability for operators seeking installations. The company now offers Gogo AVANCE L3 and L5 installation slots for Dassault Falcon, Bombardier, Hawker, Gulfstream, Embraer and Citation business-jet operators from the U.S. and Canada. Upgrades are managed at StandardAero’s Centers of Excellence in Houston, TX; Springfield, IL; and Augusta, GA.
“Gogo AVANCE systems are top sellers, and we foresee this trend to continue through 2023,” says Robert Randall, director of Avionics Sales. “In a world still experiencing supply-chain woes, we’ve taken the steps to ensure customers won’t face production delays, and our sites will be stocked with Gogo AVANCE L3 and L5 systems, ready for installation.”
StandardAero has performed more than 350 Gogo cabin-connectivity upgrades in nearly two decades as a Gogo Biz Network dealer partner.
“We want to ensure business-jet operators’ cabin-connectivity requirements are being met by offering industry-leading solutions such as Gogo’s AVANCE L3 and L5 systems,” adds Randall. “Operators can take advantage of StandardAero’s aircraft upgrade expertise and unit availability to give both passengers and crew the in-flight experience they expect in a fast-moving digital and connected world.”
Gogo AVANCE L3 and L5 systems are cabin-connectivity solutions designed to meet individual connectivity requirements, enabling customers to perform daily network activities in the sky, as they do in their home or businesses. Gogo’s in-flight broadband experience includes video conferencing, text messaging and chat, email, web surfing, access to mobile apps, and streaming of audio and video entertainment. Onboard crew and ground support can also use real-time data and remote diagnostics using the onboard connectivity system.
StandardAero is authorized by the majority of cabin management and connectivity manufacturers, offering a broad variety of installation options for business-aviation customers. In addition, through its in-house Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Organization Designation Authorization (ODA) delegation, StandardAero is a leading provider of supplemental type certificate (STC) approvals for avionics and cabin management systems.
