RUAG MRO International has completed the first installation in Europe of the Gogo Avance L5 system on a Dassault Falcon F900DX during its 2C inspection, at the Authorized Service Center (ASC) in Geneva.
The installation was based on a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC), designed by Dassault Falcon Jet Corp, and specifically validated for this project by EASA. “Our Falcon customer required full and seamless connectivity, for the broad selection of business and entertainment applications across various devices, at any given time. The Gogo Avance L5 system quickly became the solution to these exacting expectations,” stated Stephan Woodtli, general manager Site Agno, RUAG MRO International.
The Gogo Avance L5 system installation was part of a more extended and complex cabin upgrade project focusing on modernisation and enhanced comfort. The customer opted for a complete cabin interior refurbishment of wood, leather, and carpeting that also included the integration of a state-of-the-art in-flight entertainment (IFE) system. The accompanying cabin acoustic and thermal insulation improvement was also the first installation of its STC in Europe.
