FLYHT gets new certifications to advance customer installs
FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd. has announced that supplemental type certificates (STCs) have been received for the Automated Flight Information Reporting System (AFIRS) 228 on multiple aircraft types.
The approved aircraft types include the ATR 42-500 600 version and the ATR 72-212A 600 version from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the Boeing B757-200 aircraft from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) STC for the Bombardier DHC 8 -100, 200, 300 series aircraft.
The ATR STCs enable a long-time FLYHT customer to install the AFIRS 228 on its newly acquired ATR aircraft. Four of the aircraft will come online with AFIRS 228 within the month, contributing to a total of ten new aircraft that will enter into service by the end of 2016.
“We strategically pursue the receipt of STCs in order to meet customers’ needs and to create new opportunities for the sales team,” remarked FLYHT’s Chief Technical Officer Derek Graham. “The receipt of STCs allow for AFIRS installations which provide increased value to our customers in addition to revenues for the Company.”
FLYHT currently holds over 75 STCs, which allow for AFIRS installation on over 95% of commercial aircraft.
