Gogo Business Aviation has released an over-the-air (OTA) software update capability for its Gogo Avance inflight connectivity (IFC) platform. Customers can now update their system software remotely through Gogo Dash – an app-based toolkit – which eliminates the downtime required to perform manual software updates across an aircraft fleet.
Avance customers can activate OTA software updates using a Cloudport connection via Gogo Cloud, Gogo’s secure digital content delivery network, or via a terrestrial modem (TM). After 31st December, OTA updates will be available to all Avance customers exclusively through the Gogo Cloud network.
The process for executing OTA software updates is the same via Cloudport and TM. Current Avance customers can reference this step-by-step video for more information about using the Gogo Dash Equipment Maintenance app to upgrade their Avance platform software over-the-air.
“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 chief operating officer. “OTA 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.”
