Gogo Business Aviation has released over-the-air software updates for clients and their aircraft.
The update covers Gogo’s Avance technology. With the update, further modifications can now be deployed without physically touching the aircraft, reducing the time required for software updates, and improving the efficiency and management of upgrading large fleets.
“This industry-first capability for connectivity systems demonstrates our deep understanding of business aviation, and the maintenance required of aviation-grade technology,” said Sergio Aguirre, Gogo’s president and COO. “Over The Air software updates can be done completely hands-free, saving our customers time and money, and ensuring that they have the latest Avance features and functionality.”
