Gogo's breakthrough technology platform lets users customise their inflight experience based on their needs, and can be installed on business aircraft of all types and sizes. It 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 reliably access and use all available data, voice, maps, entertainment and cabin management system (CMS) services.
Using AVANCE L3, anyone onboard the aircraft can stay connected to email; send text messages and make voice calls with Gogo Text & Talk (service plan required); access their favorite flight apps such as moving maps, weather and flight information; or watch movies and TV shows using Gogo Vision (service plan required). For customers looking for full internet connectivity, 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. It's the AVANCE software-centric solutions from the provider you trust."
