Gogo Business Aviation introduced AVANCE LX5, a value-priced and easy box swap for AVANCE L5 owners to upgrade to Gogo 5G that eliminates the need to install a second Line Replaceable Unit on their aircraft. Designed in the exact same form factor as the currently available AVANCE L5, LX5 is contained in a single box LRU, ideal for space-constrained customers, and houses the hardware and software necessary to leverage the full power of the Gogo 5G network, expected to deliver mean speeds of ~25 Mbps, with peak speeds of 75-80 Mbps. Previously, an upgrade to Gogo 5G required the installation of two LRUs.

Sergio Aguirre, Gogo's president and chief operating officer, commented: "The new 5G AVANCE system is evidence of our culture of continuous improvement and the way in which we implement customer, dealer and partner feedback to drive innovation. LX5 expands our AVANCE product portfolio with a single box option for customers, making the installation of Gogo 5G even easier."

For customers new to AVANCE, they can pre-provision today by installing the MB13 5G antennas and an L5, and will be able to operate on the Gogo 4G network until the launch of Gogo 5G, which is expected in mid-year 2024, at which time they will be eligible to receive a free LX5 swap for their L5 LRU. Between now and the end of 2023, Gogo is also offering special rebates on MB13 antenna installations.

For the more than 2,200 aircraft already equipped with AVANCE L5, an upgrade to Gogo 5G will consist of a simple box swap and replacement of the DDA antennas with the new MB13 antennas. Gogo AVANCE LX5 is the next iteration of Gogo's transformative and industry-leading AVANCE platform and will retail for approximately $141,500 MSRP.

Gogo 5G is the unparalleled solution for high speed, low latency, high bandwidth and reliable nationwide Air-to-Ground coverage, offering complete coverage in the United States and parts of Canada at launch, with additional expansion in Canada to be completed in 2024. For customers flying international missions, AVANCE LX5 also provides an easy upgrade path to new technologies and networks including Gogo's global Low Earth Orbit broadband satellite solution, Gogo Galileo, launching in the second half of 2024.
