WICHITA, Kan., September 30, 2020 – Yingling Aviation announced today it has joined the Gogo Business Aviation (NASDAQ: GOGO) global dealer and distributor network.
The announcement is a continuation of the company’s strategic growth initiatives that began in 2019 and has strengthened the company’s foundation as an industry leader in general aviation maintenance and repair.
“Yingling’s rapid growth of new business aircraft customers over the past year and a half has generated the demand for more in-flight connectivity and entertainment (IFEC) solutions – especially Gogo’s AVANCE L5 and L3,” said Dominic Stremel, Yingling Aviation director of avionics. “Becoming a Gogo Business Aviation Dealer allows us to meet the demands of our customers as we build lasting partnerships with aircraft owners and operators who need state-of-the-art technology services in order for their businesses to succeed and be productive, whether on the ground or at 40,000 feet.”
The addition of Yingling’s Gogo Business Aviation Dealership designation will allow the company to focus on Gogo Business Aviation systems sales and installations for light-jet and turboprop aircraft, along with midsize jets, specifically the Cessna Citation and Beechcraft King Air models.
Gogo AVANCE is inflight connectivity’s smartest platform and the fastest, most personal way to enable passengers, crew and operators with the full power of connectivity. It is a single technology engine that can transform aircraft connectivity and drive the entire inflight experience: internet, voice, entertainment services, cabin and cockpit apps, data management tools and cloud-based diagnostics and support. Gogo currently offers the AVANCE L5 – its most robust system – and the AVANCE L3 which is an ideal solution for light jets and turboprops.
Joining the Gogo global dealer and distributor network is part of Yingling’s commitment and investment in its business for long term, future growth and success.
“Over the past 14 to 16 months we have expanded our facilities and doubled our technical avionics staff. Additionally, our footprint for MRO services has grown with the addition of 80,000 square feet of hangar space. That service includes aircraft painting, aircraft maintenance, interior completion, propeller service, avionics integration and general aircraft parts and distribution. During a time when the global aviation market has been faced with COVID-19 and other economic challenges, we have positioned ourselves to be a world-class, one-stop-shop in the region for aircraft MRO, while adding jobs and investing in the company’s future,” Stremel said.
Centrally located, Yingling Aviation has established itself as a premier provider for all Citation and King Air service and upgrade requirements. A CAA-preferred FBO and CJP Partner, Yingling Aviation is privately owned with an unwavering dedication to excellent customer service.
