Duncan Aviation recently completed its 550th installation of Gogo Business Aviation’s Avance L3 and L5 inflight connectivity systems; these have covered a wide range of business aviation aircraft.
In addition to the 550 installations completed by technicians at Duncan Aviation’s three full-service MROs and 26 Duncan Aviation satellites, design data from the company’s 14 Avance STCs was used by other installers to provide another 250 operators with a Gogo Avance system.
“Duncan Aviation has had a long and productive relationship with Gogo Business Aviation, which provides a significant benefit to our mutual customers,” said Nate Klenke, Duncan Aviation’s sales manager of modifications and completions in Lincoln, Nebraska. “Because of our confidence in the performance and reliability of the Gogo Avance L5 and L3 systems, Duncan Aviation’s Engineering & Certification Services teams have invested and continue to invest in the development of numerous STCs. We are pleased to have installed these connectivity solutions in so many customer aircraft.”
Duncan Aviation’s nine Avance L5 STCs cover the wi-fi certification, and full equipment and antenna installation required to provide inflight connectivity. All of the STCs that the Duncan Aviation teams have completed for Gogo Business Aviation system are available throughout the USA and can be installed at any of Duncan Aviation’s three full-service facilities and at many of its satellite shops and workaways.
Additionally, Duncan Aviation has sought and received approval from Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) for the STCs on the following makes/models: GLEX, GL5000, GLXRS, GL5500, GL6000 and GL6500; CL-650, CL-605, CL-604, CL-601-3A, CL-601-3R, CL300 and CL350; Gulfstream GIV, G300, G400, GIV-X, G350, G450, LP Galaxy and 200; Falcon 900, 900EX (EX, EASy, LX, DX), 2000 and 2000EX (EX, EASy, LX, DX); and Textron Aviation 680, 680+, 750, 560XL, 560XLS and 560XLS+.
Duncan Aviation’s four Avance L3 STCs are available for the Gulfstream GIV and GIV-X; CL 300 and 350; CL-650, CL-605, CL-604, CL-601-3A and CL-601-3R; and Hawker 800XP.
In addition to the extensive library of STCs developed by Duncan Aviation for Gogo equipment, STC development is underway for existing classic ATG-equipped Falcon 2000/2000EX aircraft to upgrade to Avance L3. The STC is expected to be completed later this year.
Duncan Aviation is considering additional models for STC development to assist operators with the transition from Gogo’s legacy ATG systems to its Avance platform.
