Gogo Avance L5 is now available for Cessna Citation X+, Citation Sovereign+ and Citation Latitude aircraft, following Textron Aviation’s receipt of STC approval for the upgrade. Textron Aviation’s approved model list now includes eight Citation models.
“Optimising connectivity across a range of Textron Aviation products is one more way we can enhance the ownership experience,” said Kriya Shortt, senior vice president of global customer support at Textron Aviation. “For many of our customers, the ability to connect twice as many devices and join a video conference call in flight turns travel time into productive office hours.”
Earlier in 2019, Textron Aviation announced STCs for the Gogo Avance L5 system for the Cessna Citation X, Citation Sovereign and Citation XL/XLS/XLS+. The company has completed nearly 150 Avance system upgrades for Citation customers.
The company says the Avance L5 platform-based solution delivers faster speeds and enhanced network capacity. Passengers can stream entertainment content, and conduct video conferences. Crew members can also utilise the service to pull real-time data for cockpit apps.
