Gogo Business Aviation has announced the process to secure the first-article Supplemental Type Certification (STC) for its Gogo Galileo HDX system on the Bombardier Challenger 300 series of aircraft is underway. 

"The Bombardier Challenger 300 is one of the most popular super midsize jets on the market, making it a perfect candidate for our Gogo Galileo HDX system," said Sergio Aguirre, Gogo's president and chief operating officer.

Nearly 900 Challenger 300 series aircraft (300, 350 and 3500 models) have been sold since its inception in 2004 and 595 are installed with a Gogo Air-to-Ground (ATG) system. Approximately half of the 595 are equipped with AVANCE, Gogo's industry-leading platform, providing an easy path for upgrade to the newly announced Gogo Galileo product line, harnessing the power of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) network technology. 

Duncan Aviation, the largest family-owned maintenance, repair, and overhaul service provider in the United States, is providing engineering and certification services to Gogo for the STC. 

"The anticipation for Gogo Galileo remains high among business jet operators, so we are pleased to support Gogo's efforts to secure this STC," said Mike Minchow, Duncan Aviation's executive vice president and chief operating officer.
