Gogo Business Aviation has announced the release of over-the-air (OTA) software updates for its Gogo Avance platform.
Now, new and existing customers can update their Avance system software remotely through Gogo Dash – an app-based toolkit exclusively available to Avance customers – eliminating the requirement for downtime to perform manual software updates.
“This industry-first capability for connectivity systems demonstrates our deep understanding of business aviation, and the maintenance required of aviation-grade technology,” said Sergio Aguirre, Gogo’s president and chief operating officer. “OTA software updates can be done completely hands-free, saving our customers time and money, and ensuring that they have the latest Avance features and functionality.”
Avance customers can perform OTA software updates using a Cloudport connection via Gogo’s secure digital content delivery network, Gogo Cloud, or via terrestrial modem (TM). After 31 December 2024, OTA will be available to all Avance customers exclusively through the Gogo Cloud network.
The process for executing OTA software updates is the same via Cloudport and TM. Current Avance customers can reference this step-by-step video for more information on using the Gogo Dash Equipment Maintenance app to upgrade their Avance platform software over-the-air, or contact Gogo.
