Making use of one of nine STCs developed in-house, Duncan Aviation will complete its 250th Gogo Avance L5 inflight wi-fi installation on a Gulfstream GV-SP at its site in Lincoln, Nebraska.
“The long, productive relationship between Duncan Aviation and Gogo Business Aviation provides a significant benefit to our mutual customers,” said Nate Klenke, Duncan Aviation’s sales manager of modifications in Lincoln, Nebraska. “Because of our confidence in the performance and reliability of the Gogo Avance L5, Duncan Aviation’s engineering and certification services teams have invested in the development of numerous STCs and AMLs, covering the full-equipment installation of the system in more than 30 aircraft models. Duncan Aviation is pleased to have installed the Avance L5 in 250 of our customers’ aircraft.”
Gogo Avance L5 connects to the Gogo Biz 4G network, enabling activities such as live streaming video and audio, video conferencing, personal smartphone use, real-time data for cockpit apps, and remote diagnostics and support in flight.
“The Gogo Avance L5 wi-fi system has become one of the popular standard offerings recommended for the business jet market, particularly business travellers who need high-speed data connectivity for passengers,” said Brent Hudecek, avionics sales rep. “The Duncan Aviation team is excited to have sold and installed 250 of these systems in many different makes and models of jet aircraft, and we look forward to selling many more in the future. We are confident that Gogo will stand behind this reliable product and continue to enhance their network.”
For a limited time, Duncan Aviation is extending the free-of-charge period for Gogo Text & Talk and Gogo Vision subscription services to one full year. Gogo Text & Talk enables an aircraft’s crew and passengers use their personal smartphones and devices to call and text in the air just as they do on the ground. Gogo Vision gives passengers access to blockbuster movies, TV shows, magazines, flight maps and more on their own devices during flight.
The Duncan Aviation STC covers the wi-fi certification and full equipment and antenna installation required to provide inflight connectivity to the Gogo Biz 4G network.
All of the STCs that the Duncan Aviation teams have completed for this 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.
