Gogo Gets 5G Antenna STC

Approval Means Network Can Hit the Ground Running with Full Support

Gogo has received their long-awaited approval and Supplemental Type Certification as well as Parts Manufacturer Approval for their 5G aircraft antenna. 

It's an exciting change for the company, allowing them to now take full advantage of the fastest combination of equipment in their catalog: The AVANCE L5 and their growing 5G network. The approval means that Gogo can really accelerate the rollout of their highest-speed, highest-throughput service for aircraft throughout the states. A number of authorized dealers and OEM partners are actively pursuing multiple STCs for the system across a variety of aircraft, more than 30 in all. With the combination of AVANCE L5 receivers and core equipment with the new 5G antenna, those aboard will see around 25 mbps on average, with peak speeds in the neighborhood of 75-80 mbps. For those catering to the high-flying, upscale clientele common to charter jet service, steadily available video conferencing and calling is a large draw that enables passengers to monetize their time in the air. 

“Receiving STC and PMA for the 5G antenna marks the next important milestone in the development of Gogo 5G,” said Sergio Aguirre, president of Gogo Business Aviation. “Our team has been hard at work to bring Gogo 5G to life and we remain on track and on budget to launch service in the second half of 2022.” 

The STC for the multiband belly-mounted 5G antenna was recently received by Duncan Aviation on its company-owned Citation 560XLS. In November, Gogo also announced that Duncan Aviation is working to complete the first-article STC for the onboard 5G system. For now, it's a race to see which makes and models will be first to avail themselves of the increased internet connectivity. 

Gogo's authorized dealers and OEM partners are actively pursuing multiple STCs that will certify the Gogo 5G system for installation on more than 30 business aircraft models.
