Textron Aviation has selected Gogo Business Aviation’s AVANCE L3 system as a factory option on new production Beechcraft King Air 360/360ER aircraft.
The aircraft is currently in production with customer deliveries expected to begin in the coming weeks and is the first model in the King Air turboprop family to offer the solution as a factory option.
“Gogo and Textron Aviation have a longstanding relationship that spans decades and with all of the innovative enhancements offered on the King Air 360, adding AVANCE L3 provides an upgrade to the latest generation of in-flight connectivity and entertainment which will greatly enhance the passenger experience,” said Mark Sander, vice president of OEM sales for Gogo. “Additionally, with the L3 onboard, operators of the King Air 360 will be equipped to take advantage of the lowered service altitude of the Gogo network. We lowered our service level to 3,000 feet above ground level which enables the L3 to provide connectivity on shorter routes and provides additional connectivity time on longer flights.”
