Posted 9 May 2015 · Add Comment

Canada's FLYHT Aerospace Solutions has announced it has signed a contract for its Automated Flight Information Reporting System (AFIRSTM) 228 on a fleet of four A320 aircraft. For an unnamed African airline.

In a statement it said the African-based airline is keen to use FLYHT’s suite of tools including automated Out, Off, On and In times, FLYHT’s new web-based flight following Aircraft Situational Display (ASD), engine and airframe exceedance reports, real-time flight data monitoring, quick access recorder flight data, global voice communications enabled by the Iridium satellite network and added AFIRS features on demand.

“We continue to receive interest from African Airlines,” stated Bill Tempany, CEO of FLYHT. “Our sales director just returned from the African Airlines Association conference where there is a continued drive to improve safety and operational efficiency. AFIRS is the solution to meet their needs.”

FLYHT will provide equipment and services to the airline over a five-year contract with automatic yearly renewals after the initial term. FLYHT already has the required supplemental type certificates (STCs) to install on the A320 aircraft. Installations are anticipated to begin mid-June 2015.

If FLYHT completes installation on all four contracted aircraft and provides recurring revenue services for the full term of the agreement, gross revenue to FLYHT will be approximately $710,000 , excluding optional services.
