4G Dual-Directional Antenna Shipments and Gogo AVANCE L5 Installations Underway

Gogo Business Aviation (NASDAQ: GOGO), the provider of broadband connectivity products and services for business aviation, has received Supplemental Type Certification (STC) and Parts Manufacturer Approval (PMA) from the FAA for its new dual-directional antennas which will be used with the Gogo AVANCETM L5 system (formerly known as the Gogo Biz 4G LRU), the company said.

Gogo AVANCE L5 connects to the Gogo Biz 4G network delivering faster speeds and enhanced network capacity enabling a more robust experience for activities such as live streaming video and audio, on-demand movies, personal smartphone use, real-time data for cockpit apps, and remote diagnostics and support while in flight.

Gogo´s dealers and OEM partners are actively pursuing multiple STCs that will certify the Gogo AVANCE L5 system for installation on more than 40 business aircraft models. The majority of other business aircraft models will also be available for Gogo AVANCE L5 system installation utilizing existing STCs.
