LINCOLN, Neb. — The FAA has approved Silverhawk Aviation’s Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for the Gogo AVANCE L5 system for the Cessna Citation XL/XLS/XLS+ aircraft. The STC includes the installation of the Gogo AVANCE L5 system components and system activation.

Canadian Validation and PMA on the belly antenna shim adapters is anticipated to be received first quarter of 2018. Additional AVANCE L5 system STC installations in Cessna Citation 560, Ultra, and Encore and Encore+ aircraft are in process at Silverhawk Aviation and expected to be approved before the end of the year.

AVANCE L5 is a complete Wi-Fi system that operates on the Gogo Biz 4G network. It is designed specifically for business aircraft and offers enhanced connectivity applications for activities such as streaming audio and video, email with large attachments, and the ability to make phone calls or send text messages. The Wi-Fi equipment developed by Gogo Business Aviation has a dual-band router, meaning it can operate on either the 2.4 or 5 gigahertz (GHz) frequency. The ability to switch is a benefit to passengers because when the 2.4GHz frequency is in heavy use, switching to the 5GHz frequency with its greater number of channels can improve performance.

To schedule a date and time to install the Gogo AVANCE L5 at Silverhawk Aviation in Lincoln, Neb., or to order the complete STC kit for installation at any authorized Gogo Business Aviation installer, call +1 402.475.8600.
