StandardAero Preps for Gogo Avance Upgrade Demand Surge

Aug 31,2023

StandardAero is designating maintenance capacity across its MRO facilities as operators with Gogo classic air-to-ground (ATG) connectivity systems seek upgrades to Avance systems. This is being spawned by Gogo Business Aviation¡¯s plans to phase out service support in 2026 for the more than 3,000 business aircraft currently flying with these classic ATG systems.

Thus, the company has established a slot program in which Gogo classic ATG customers can reserve a scheduled slot for installation at one of StandardAero¡¯s four U.S. facilities where it performs Gogo work: Augusta, Georgia; Houston; Springfield, Illinois; and Van Nuys, California. StandardAero has installed more than 455 Gogo systems over the 19 years of its partnership with the airborne connectivity provider.

¡°As we balance the increased levels of installation interest with anticipated lack of available floor space capacity, we are committed to minimizing maintenance downtime and mitigating interruptions for Gogo operators,¡± said StandardAero president of business aviation Tony Brancato. ¡°The slot program allows customers to rest easy knowing their Gogo inflight connectivity upgrade needs will be taken care of with timely care and attention.¡±

Under this background, 2023 Aviation Digital Operation Congress is scheduled to be held in Haikou City, Hainan Province from September 5th to 6th 2023. The theme is Digital Empowerment, Upgrade the Connectivity, gathering airlines, telecom operators, Web technology platform, satellite companies, system providers, etc.

The congress will focus on satellite connectivity, ATG connectivity, integrated electronic flight book, digital management of operation and control, front and rear cabin expansion application, aircraft ground collaborative digital service and exploration of new cockpit digital technology and in-flight technology. Thus, to improve aircraft operation safety, efficiency and production organization capacity, and promote high-quality development of civil aviation.
