Inflight Wi-Fi connectivity provider Gogo Business Aviation’s Avance systems—Avance L5 and Avance L3—have reached a milestone of more than 175,000 flights and more than 108 million miles flown. It comes after the initial launch of Avance L5 in mid-2017.

“When we launched the Avance L5, we knew it would delight our customers, but it’s surpassed all our expectations,” said Gogo president Sergio Aguirre. “We then launched Avance L3 and that system has delivered connectivity to smaller aircraft bringing a customizable connectivity experience to meet the needs of passengers on light jets and turboprops. The great news is that demand from the marketplace continues to be strong for both systems.”

Using a combination of hardware and software that’s serviced and supported remotely, the Avance platform is scalable, allowing new features to be added as connectivity technology evolves. In all, Gogo Business Aviation reported 5,462 aircraft flying with its air-to-ground systems onboard and another 5,099 using satellite connectivity.
