Gogo AVANCE L3 Factory Option for Pilatus PC-24 Super Versatile Jet


BROOMFIELD, Colo., Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Pilatus has selected Gogo Business Aviation's (NASDAQ: GOGO) AVANCE L3 system as a factory option on new production PC-24 aircraft, and has secured STCs for the PC-24 and the PC-12 NGX.

The PC-24 joins the PC-12 NGX as the second airframe from Pilatus to install the AVANCE L3 system at the factory. The AVANCE L3 is an inflight Wi-Fi system that delivers the benefits of the Gogo AVANCE platform in a small, lightweight form factor, with the most affordable pricing options in business aviation. With the L3 users can choose an inflight Wi-Fi experience fitted to their unique needs or preferences. It is an ideal solution for smaller business jets and turboprops.

"Pilatus' selection of Gogo AVANCE L3 is a great step forward with a valued partner who recognizes the value of our software-centric AVANCE platform and the reliability and performance of the Gogo network," said Mark Sander, vice president of OEM sales for Gogo. "The AVANCE L3 enables a customized experience to best fit customers' needs based on the number of passengers and the online experience they desire."

Using AVANCE L3, passengers and crew can stay connected to email, send text messages and make voice calls with Gogo Text & Talk or access their favorite flight apps such as moving maps, weather and flight information. The L3 system comes installed with Gogo Vision featuring entertainment and news including the latest Hollywood films, hit television programs, business programming from Bloomberg TV, and 30 leading magazine titles in digital format.

"The AVANCE L3 system stands out in the market because our customers can choose the inflight Wi-Fi experience they want, as well as the additional value-added features and benefits it enables," said Tom Aniello, vice president of marketing for Pilatus. "Inflight Wi-Fi has become one of the most important features requested by our customers, and based on the performance our PC-12 operators have enjoyed, it was an easy decision for us to add it as an option from the factory for the PC-24."

The AVANCE platform also integrates a full range of Smart Cabin features, allowing passengers to access and use all available data, voice, maps, entertainment and cabin management system (CMS) services.
