In May, 2012 shareholders approved a Company name change from AeroMechanical Services Ltd. (TSX.V: AMA) to FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd. (TSX.V : FLY). Since 1998 FLYHT has worked to perfect an automated data collection and delivery service for commercial aviation. The company has become one of the world’s leading providers of real-time data communications for the aerospace industry.
FLYHT’s main product and service offering to the industry is the Automated Flight Information Reporting System, or AFIRS TM . The system operates on multiple aircraft types and provides functions such as voice and text messaging, data collection and transmission, and on-demand streaming of black box data. AFIRS sends that information to its companion, UpTime TM , the ground service product, which stores and transfers the data to the customer in real time. Aircraft operators can use this information to increase safety, improve service, and enhance profitability.
In addition to its data monitoring functions, AFIRS provides voice and text messaging capabilities that give pilots the ability to communicate with ground support. FLYHT, through its relationship with Iridium Communications , offers global satellite coverage that provides service to whoever needs it, when they need it, anywhere on the planet.
This technology is remarkable because for the first time in history, FLYHT has demonstrated that live flight data can be streamed from an aircraft in real time. If an airplane encounters an emergency, FLYHT’s proven technology, FLYHTStream TM , can be automatically triggered to stream vital data that is normally secured in the black box, and provide position information to designated sites on the ground in real time. This technology opens new doors for increased safety and data analysis capabilities in the aerospace industry.
In November 2013 FLYHT introduced the Dragon ™ as a revolutionary, lightweight, portable satellite communications device that blends existing FLYHT technology with that of the iPad. FLYHT developed the new product to meet a growing demand from small aircraft, business jet and helicopter operators for a satellite communications solution similar to AFIRS.
Clients are using our products on every continent. We proudly serve more than 45 aircraft operators globally. FLYHT has also developed an extensive list of certifications for various types of aircraft from Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier, Hawker Beech, Viking Air, Fokker, Embraer and others ( STC Chart Link ).
FLYHT’s headquarters are located in Calgary, Canada with representation in China, the Middle East, South America, United States and Europe. The Company has been publicly traded on the Toronto Venture Exchange since March 2003, first under the symbol AMA and now under FLY.
