PlaneSense is installing Gogo Business Aviation AVANCE L3 connectivity system across its fleet of Pilatus PC-12s. PlaneSense, Inc. operates a growing fractional fleet, currently consisting of 39 PC-12s and seven Pilatus PC-24 jets. At this time, 32 PC-12s, and the entire jet fleet, are flying with active AVANCE L3 systems onboard.

The AVANCE L3 is an important addition to the value proposition of the PlaneSense® program, especially with its excellent bandwidth performance, and with functionality starting at 3,000 feet," said George Antoniadis, president and CEO, PlaneSense, Inc. "Clients in our jet program have greatly enjoyed Gogo's L3 connectivity since 2018 and we are thrilled to now offer this benefit to our PC-12 clients."

The AVANCE L3 provides full internet capability in a lightweight and small form factor, ideal for light jets and turboprop aircraft. PlaneSense, Inc. is also offering the base version of Gogo Vision which provides a moving map for passengers to track flight progress and news clips.

"By offering Gogo Wi-Fi on its fleet, PlaneSense, Inc. clients are able to make their flight time more productive, and entertaining," said Jim Zanino, vice president of customer sales for Gogo Business Aviation. "Regardless of the size or mission of an aircraft, passengers expect quality inflight Wi-Fi and the L3 delivers a great experience."

Atlas Aircraft Center, the maintenance affiliate of the PlaneSense program, has managed the L3 system installations and will complete the remaining PC-12 installations in the coming weeks. All new PC-12 aircraft added to the PlaneSense, Inc. fleet will come equipped with the L3 beginning in 2023.

The PlaneSense fractional program performed more than 37,300 missions in 2021.
