Western Aircraft, a Greenwich AeroGroup Company, continues to expand its leadership in the maintenance and modifications of Pilatus Aircraft by being the first to install a Gogo AVANCE™ L5 in-flight connectivity system on a Pilatus PC-24.
“We are extremely proud of our team,” says Jody Harris, director of Aircraft Services for Western Aircraft. “Our recent installation of the first Gogo AVANCE L5 system on a PC-24 went smoothly, and we even delivered early.”
“These are very exciting times for our industry, Gogo and our valued partner, Western Aircraft, with their first installation of the AVANCE L5 in the prestigious Pilatus PC-24 business jet,” says David Salvador, vice president of Aftermarket Sales for Gogo Business Aviation. “We are grateful that Western Aircraft continues to look for opportunities to install Gogo’s inflight entertainment and connectivity systems on new airframes.”
Western Aircraft recently announced it has completed 20 percent of all PC-24 big aircraft modifications (BAMs) worldwide and five 12-month inspections on PC-24s. The company has seven factory-trained PC-24 technicians and supports AOG events for PC-24 aircraft with 24/7 availability.
