Flying Colours installs first Gogo L3 AVANCE on Challengers

North America-based Flying Colours Corp. is installing Gogo AVANCE L3 air-to-ground connectivity systems on two Bombardier Challenger aircraft, a CL604 and CL605.

The installation of the small-form, fully-integrated AVANCE L3 inflight connectivity and entertainment solution represents a first for Flying Colours, which has already installed several of the Gogo AVANCE L5 systems.

Kevin Kliethermes, Director of Sales for Flying Colours, said: “As the privately-owned aircraft operate predominantly across North America we advised our clients that the Gogo AVANCE L3 system will fulfil the flexibility, reliability and meaningful data-speeds, needed by them.

“The solution is proving popular on mid-size aircraft with missions based mainly in North America. We have more AVANCE installations confirmed, and expect the trend to continue as the ever-increasing demand for feature rich, high-speed data access at affordable prices continues.”

Each of the Gogo AVANCE L3 installations form part of a wider work scope which exemplifies the range of capabilities supplied by Flying Colours at both the company’s North American facilities.

The first Bombardier Challenger 604 is undergoing an interior refurbishment of all soft goods, cabinetry, and avionics at the Flying Colours Peterborough, Ontario, headquarters.

The Challenger 605, is undergoing major maintenance work including a complete gear overhaul, a scheduled 96-month inspection, full external paintwork, and a flight-deck upgrade to the Rockwell Collins Pro Line 21 Advanced system at the Flying Colours St Louis, MO. Facility.

Both aircraft will have fuselage paintwork revamps in the dedicated paint shop at the Peterborough location.

“Underlined by our status as a Bombardier Aerospace ASF, we have the ability to complete a wide variety of interior and exterior enhancements, as well as maintenance and avionics upgrades on Bombardier aircraft.

“It means we can ensure owners maximise budget and aircraft downtime by completing a number of different projects in parallel,” said Kliethermes.

Work on both aircraft is expected to be completed in late summer.

Once installed the Gogo AVANCE L3 system will provide passengers with access to the Gogo Biz Broadband network and will support, dependent on package, access to voice, email, web browsing, moving maps, and a selection of movies and TV programmes.
