Pilatus has selected Gogo Business Aviation’s latest in-flight connectivity technology, Gogo AVANCE L3, as a factory option on new production PC-12 NG aircraft.
The PC-12 NG becomes the first single-engine turboprop to have the L3 system installed at the factory and because the L3 includes Gogo Vision – it marks the first time passengers on a PC-12 NG will have access to Gogo Vision’s extensive list of features, including movies and television programs.
“Pilatus’ selection of Gogo AVANCE L3 is a great step forward with a valued partner who recognises the value of our software-centric AVANCE platform and the reliability and performance of the Gogo Biz network,” said Mark Sander, vice president of OEM sales for Gogo. “The Gogo AVANCE L3 offers unparalleled flexibility and scalability compared to other in-flight connectivity solutions in business aviation and now, for the first time, passengers on a PC-12 NG can access entertainment services provided by Gogo Vision.”
“Our customers enjoy having the ability to be connected when they fly and we’re pleased to offer Gogo’s AVANCE L3 as an option from the factory,” said Tom Aniello, vice president of Marketing for Pilatus. “The additional value added features and benefits that are included as part of the AVANCE L3 made it an easy decision to offer it to our customers from the factory.”
