FLYHT gets second certification from Brazilian authorities

In addition, the Company received a re-issued Transport Canada STC, adding the ATR-500 model for AFIRS 228 certification to the STC previously issued. The certificate will be used to install AFIRS on an existing Canadian customer’s newly acquired aircraft for routes in Canada.

“We continue to expand and develop AFIRS 228 STCs to reach popular aircraft types in operation by several of our existing customers as well as prospective customers,” said Thomas R. Schmutz, CEO of FLYHT.

A STC constitutes regulatory approval to modify an aircraft’s design while retaining airworthiness certification and is necessary to permit retrofit installation of aeronautical products such as AFIRS. The Company continues to develop STCs for numerous other aircraft types.

AFIRS 228 is FLYHT’s next-generation flagship product. It is designed to provide a fully certified avionics platform capable of meeting all air navigation communications requirements in Europe, the United States and other jurisdictions around the world. It also provides the input and outputs necessary to enhance the value of real-time data for FLYHT’s customers globally. The AFIRS 228 enables the FLYHTStream application to provide real-time black box data streaming.
