FAA Approves Banyan Gogo Avance L3 STC for HondaJet
From AIN: The FAA has approved a Banyan Air Service supplemental type certificate (STC) for the installation of Gogo Avance L3 Wi-Fi on the HondaJet HA-420. This STC is the culmination of a year-long project for Fort Lauderdale, Florida-based Banyan and Gogo. It will be offered as an in-house installation or a standalone STC data packet sale to in-network Gogo dealers.
“We are excited to provide HondaJet operators with the latest in connectivity solutions,” said Banyan director of avionics Danny Santiago. "Avance L3 enables passengers to work, socialize, and have access to information and entertainment in the air as they are used to on the ground.”
Gogo Avance L3 and L5 are line-fit factory options on 27 new-production business aircraft and are certified and installed on some 198 different models of aircraft in the aftermarket, according to Gogo. There are more than 2,000 Avance systems in service.
A full-service FBO at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport, Banyan provides heavy maintenance, exterior and interior upgrades, turbine engine service, structural repairs, avionics installations and services, and aircraft part sales.
