Elliott Aviation, a leading business aviation service provider, has installed and delivered their first Gogo Avance L5 system. The installation was completed on a Citation Excel, which also had Elliott's recently approved Garmin ADS-B STC for Honeywell equipped aircraft included in the work scope. The aircraft also received a full paint and interior refurbishment by Elliott Aviation. In addition to this Gogo Avance system, the company currently has a Gogo Avance L3 system being installed in an Astra, which is also receiving full paint and interior by Elliott Aviation.
The Gogo Avance system offers the latest in 4G in-flight connectivity to allow video and audio streaming, Gogo Vision on-demand movies and more at the fastest available speeds. The system provides support for streaming multiple devices and allows users to stay in touch using your own device with Gogo talk & text.
The Garmin ADS-B STC utilizes remote mount Garmin GTX-3000 smart transponders and will provide a $50,000 credit toward a future Garmin G5000 installation in the Citation Excel and XLS. This fully-integrated STC does not require any of the current Honeywell equipment to be sent out for upgrades and is priced less than the current Honeywell upgrade by 40% or more. This STC can also be applied to any aircraft with the Honeywell Primus II radio package and includes TCAS-II equipped aircraft. It also includes ADS-B IN through a Bluetooth compatible device. Elliott Aviation has already received two full deposits for the highly anticipated Garmin G5000 in the Citation Excel/XLS.
"We've seen an increase in demand for 4G systems and we're happy to be installing multiple Gogo Avance packages at our headquarters in Moline," said Conrad Theisen, Director of Avionics Sales for Elliott Aviation. "Oftentimes we are seeing customers wanting to take advantage of downtime to install their system with other upgrades like ADS-B, maintenance events or paint and interior upgrades. Our one-stop-shop gives customers the convenience to do that."
