Banyan Air Service dedicates crew for Gogo AVANCE installations



gogoFort Lauderdale FL.  Banyan Air Service, a Fixed Base Operator (FBO), announces a dedicated program to complete Gogo Business Aviation AVANCE installations on small- to large-cabin aircraft with minimal downtime.

Banyan has arranged a skilled crew at its master technician facility in the heart of South Florida at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (KFXE) to facilitate the increased level of upgrade demand for AVANCE system installations. The Banyan complex offers service options available 24 hours a day for near-immediate availability to meet any schedule.

Gogo is migrating its network technology to LTE (long-term evolution) in early 2026 and once that is completed, customers with a legacy ATG system (ATG 1000, 2000, 4000, 5000) who do not upgrade to AVANCE will lose their Gogo inflight connectivity. Banyan has this dedicated crew to help meet the increased demand anticipated for AVANCE upgrades.

As an authorized Gogo Business Aviation dealer since 2014, Banyan’s skilled aviation technicians have installed more than 60 AVANCE L3 and L5 systems since the systems were introduced in 2017.

“With dozens of AVANCE installations under our belt on aircraft ranging in all sizes and models, we have extensive experience with Gogo system upgrades,” said Banyan Director of Avionics Danny Santiago. “Operators can turn to us for competitive pricing, minimum downtime and for exceptional service from the No. 1 FBO in the U.S. according to the 2023 Professional Pilot PRASE Survey.”

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.

“Banyan’s commitment to providing top-notch service to our shared customers is evident in their attention to detail with each AVANCE system installation,” said Dave Salvador, vice president of the aftermarket channel for Gogo. “Operators are in good hands with our valued partners at Banyan.”

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 about upgrading your Gogo AVANCE system, contact Banyan at www.banyanair.com.
