FLYHT’s subscription voice and data services may be added in the future, further increasing the value of the contracts. The first airline will install AFIRS on its fleet of A300 aircraft and the second on its B757 and B737 aircraft.
 
“These sales mark close to US$5.5 million in AFIRS sales to new customers in China this year and bring the number of customers in China to 23,” remarked Michael Fang, FLYHT’s vice president of China Sales. “We also continue to upsell our existing Chinese customers with subscription voice and data services, and have signed contracts for these services to almost US$700,000 in 2017.”
 
FLYHT has all the necessary Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) to complete installation on the B757 and B737 aircraft. Installations are anticipated to begin in the third quarter of 2017. The Company will begin installations on the A300 aircraft after that STC is achieved.
