What Gogo’s Network Migration Means for Blackhawk Aerospace and Our Customers: A Win for Business Aviation

In a world where innovation drives progress, Blackhawk Aerospace is thrilled to share how Gogo is leading the way by upgrading its air-to-ground (ATG) network to the cutting-edge LTE (long-term evolution) technology. By the end of 2025, Gogo will have successfully completed this network migration, bringing a wave of benefits for Blackhawk Aerospace and our valued customers.

When you equip your aircraft with an AVANCE system you’ll immediately experience a significant enhancement in performance. And when the LTE network becomes operational, you can expect yet another substantial boost in connectivity. In an era of ever-increasing data demands, the AVANCE system will seamlessly keep pace with your connectivity needs, ensuring that you’re always connected, regardless of your location.

Upgrade Imperative: Classic ATG System Users Take Note

Now, let’s address what this network migration means for those who are currently using the classic ATG system from Gogo. If you’re one of these customers, it’s essential to understand that to continue enjoying the high level of Gogo connectivity you’re accustomed to, you’ll need to make the transition to an AVANCE system. 

Secure Your Space: Prioritizing the AVANCE Upgrade

With over 3,000 aircraft slated for AVANCE upgrades, time is of the essence. We urge you to prioritize your upgrade to avoid a situation where you’re scrambling for MRO space in 2025. We all remember how ADS-B compliance impacted business aviation when many operators found themselves struggling to secure space for the required updates. Don’t let your aircraft face a similar predicament this time around.

Customer Testimonials: AVANCE Upgrade Success Stories

Now, let’s hear directly from Gogo customers who have already made the switch to AVANCE systems:

  • Brad Ongna, Manager of Maintenance and Ground Operations at Stryker Corporation, shares, “Overall, the upgrade was fairly streamlined. We did it at the same time as a light inspection. Our executives love AVANCE L5. They notice the difference (from the ATG 5000). AVANCE L5 is faster, maintains performance with more devices, and is better for Wi-Fi phone calls.”
  • Jason Talley, Pilot and Director of CJP, adds, “I’m not easily impressed, but AVANCE L3 has really impressed me. It is so much more than I was expecting. I was wholly unprepared for the difference in performance. The ATG 5000 was adequate, but with the AVANCE L3, it is truly wonderful connectivity. The Gogo AVANCE upgrade was 100% worth it. Even the install time was minimal, five days.”
