Gogo Business Aviation has unveiled Gogo AVANCE L3, a new in-flight connectivity system delivering the benefits of the Gogo AVANCE platform to passengers and flight departments in a small, lightweight form factor.
The technology platform lets users customise their in-flight experience based on their needs, and can be installed on business aircraft of all types and sizes, but is an ideal solution for smaller aircraft including turboprops and light jets.
The Gogo AVANCE platform integrates a full range of Smart Cabin features, allowing passengers to access and use all available data, voice, maps, entertainment and cabin management systems (CMS) services.
The new system includes a built-in smart router and allows for a variety of service offerings to best fit a customer’s needs. The flexibility allows operators to tailor their passengers’ experience. With AVANCE L3 they can control and manage the number of devices they allow to connect and can scale their configuration up or down seamlessly as needs change.
Using AVANCE L3 anyone on-board the aircraft can stay connected to email, send text messages and make voice calls with Gogo Text & Talk (service plan required), access flight apps such as moving maps, weather and flight information, or watch movies and TV shows using Gogo Vision (service plan required). AVANCE L3 can be enabled to connect to the Gogo Biz data network delivering a 3G experience.
“We designed AVANCE L3 to provide a robust, high-performance Wi-Fi experience at an affordable price that gives customers the flexibility to add or reduce system capabilities as their business needs evolve,” said Mike Syverson, senior vice president of development for Gogo Business Aviation. “AVANCE L3 gives the ability to move seamlessly to different service offerings without being constrained by the hardware itself.”
