The CRJ900 is the second aircraft that was delivered with AFIRS onboard to China Express Airlines. In total, China Express Airlines has ordered six AFIRS units and the Company expects them to be fully operational by Q2 2013.

"Bombardier Aerospace Management in Mirabel took a decision this summer to install AFIRS Supplemental Type Certificate ("STC") on our production line in lieu of moving the aircraft to a third party to perform the installation," stated Nancy Crothers, CRJ Price & Offerability Commercial Aircraft Programs. "There has been outstanding support and service from FLYHT Aerospace Solutions to facilitate this action and we are very pleased with the decision to move this to a production line fit."

"We are very pleased to have factory fit from a second OEM this year and are proud that we can provide the products and service that are rightfully demanded by an aircraft manufacturer to meet their customers' requirements," stated Matt Bradley, VP Business Development of FLYHT. "We are working hard to expand the list of manufacturers from the current list of three that see AFIRS as a part of their overall delivery to customers."
