“The FAA in the U.S. and EASA in Europe are the largest certification authorities as well as the most recognized,” commented Jeff Brunner, FLYHT’s Vice President of Certification Engineering & China Operations. “Many smaller countries and leasing companies accept approval from the state of manufacture to install equipment such as AFIRS so this STC opens many doors to potential customers.”

The Company also received the provisions STC on the Bombardier DHC-8-400 series aircraft for theAFIRS 228 from Transport Canada. A provisions STC allows FLYHT to install and complete a test flight on a customer’s aircraft in order to receive the full STC. There are currently two prospective customers who will potentially take advantage of this STC to utilize AFIRS and allow for full certification on their aircraft.
