Duncan Aviation has installed the Gogo Biz 4G AVANCE L5 system in more than 50 aircraft and has contributed to more than 65 additional installations with the use of its STCs. In addition to installations at the three full-service facilities in Battle Creek, Michigan; Lincoln, Nebraska; and Provo, Utah; the techs at many of the Satellite Avionics Shops in Duncan Aviation’s extensive Satellite Avionics network have also performed installations.

“Connectivity has and will continue to be a large part of business aviation,” says Duncan Aviation Manager of Completions/Modifications Service Sales Nate Klenke. “Duncan Aviation will continue to partner with innovators such as Gogo Business Aviation to develop paths for integration of inflight connectivity into the business jet fleet.”

All of Duncan Aviation’s Gogo AVANCE L5 STCs have been developed with advancements in technology in mind. Installing the AVANCE L5 equipment and Wi-Fi using one of the Duncan Aviation STCs will provide customers with a roadmap for future upgrades.

The desire for inflight connectivity and the need for more bandwidth is only going to continue to increase,” said David Salvador, Vice President of Aftermarket Sales for Gogo Business Aviation. “We sincerely appreciate the long-standing partnership we have with the Duncan Aviation team and the organization’s investments to provide quality installations on the latest Gogo inflight connectivity and entertainment (IFEC) solutions for our mutual customers’ aircraft.”

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