Yingling Aviation, a full-service maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) and fixed-base operation (FBO) facility, will offer special savings for Gogo AVANCE installations scheduled by March 2024.

Located in Wichita, Kan., Yingling’s incentive programs are designed to facilitate increased upgrade demand before Gogo Business Aviation’s (NASDAQ: GOGO) air-to-ground (ATG) network migration to newer LTE technology, which is expected to be completed in early 2026. Operators who do not upgrade to an AVANCE system will lose their Gogo inflight connectivity when the network migration is completed.

Gogo customers operating a legacy ATG system (ATG 1000, 2000, 4000, 5000) can receive $10,000 off their installation by booking an AVANCE installation slot with Yingling by March 2024 or when scheduling an AVANCE installation with other maintenance, interior or paint slots in 2024.

“We understand there’s an urgency to complete Gogo legacy system upgrades in a relatively short time,” said Dominic Stremel, director of avionics at Yingling Aviation. “We earn our customers’ confidence through attentive and expert service that reduces downtime and cost for operators. This incentive program is another example of our relentless focus on our customers.”

Centrally located in the U.S. at Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport (KICT), Yingling is an ideal MRO and FBO facility for AVANCE installations, specializing in Cessna, Beechcraft, and Textron aircraft.

As an authorized Gogo dealer, Yingling’s skilled aviation technicians have installed 15 AVANCE L3 and L5 systems since 2020. With major expansion projects underway to its KICT footprint, expected to be fully operational in January 2024, Yingling’s capacity for Gogo AVANCE installations will only increase.

“The ability for Gogo customers to rely on Yingling’s team for quick and efficient AVANCE installations with increased savings is a testament to our strong partnership,“ said Dave Salvador, vice president of the aftermarket channel for Gogo.

Operators flying with one of Gogo’s legacy ATG systems who upgrade to AVANCE will see an immediate improvement in performance, with an additional boost when the network transition to LTE is complete.

In addition to Yingling’s incentive programs, customers who currently have a legacy ATG system and upgrade to AVANCE can take advantage of Gogo rebates that range from $25,000 to $50,000. For more information on upgrading your Gogo AVANCE system, contact us today.
