BROOMFIELD, Colo., Nov. 7, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Gogo Business Aviation's (GOGO) latest connectivity solution for light jets – Gogo AVANCE L3 – has been selected by Airshare for installation across its entire fleet of Embraer Phenom 100 aircraft.
"We're thrilled to partner with Airshare to bring connectivity and inflight entertainment to its travelers," said David Salvador, vice president of aftermarket sales, Gogo Business Aviation. "AVANCE L3 is a proven solution and is ideal for mid and lighter jets bringing connectivity to the cabin at an affordable price."
Airshare operates 11 Phenom 100 aircraft in its fleet, and is recognized as one of the most cost-effective fractional aircraft providers in private aviation for business and leisure travelers. The company also features Embraer Phenom 300s within its fleet, many of which are equipped with Gogo's connectivity systems onboard. Airshare has also committed to installing AVANCE L5 on all new Phenom 300 aircraft it adds to the fleet in the future.
"We strive to provide the most outstanding flight experience for our customers, and they expect to have excellent connectivity while in the air," said Harry Mitchel, chief operating officer, Airshare. "Gogo's AVANCE L3 and L5 are a perfect fit for us. Their innovative systems are reliable and scalable, while also allowing us to affordably meet the connectivity needs of our customers."
AVANCE L3 is an innovative inflight connectivity 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. Gogo's technology platform lets users customize their inflight experience based on their unique needs, and can be installed on business aircraft of all types and sizes, but is an ideal solution for smaller aircraft including turboprops and light jets.
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); or access their favorite flight apps such as moving maps, weather and flight information. For customers looking for full internet connectivity, AVANCE L3 can be enabled to connect to the Gogo Biz data network delivering a 3G experience.
Three service offerings – Core, Plus, Max – deliver options for performance and number of users, with affordable pricing to match virtually any budget. It's the ultimate in scalability and flexibility.
The Gogo AVANCE L3 system operates over the proven Gogo Biz network which delivers a 3G experience, covering the United States and portions of Canada and Alaska.
