FLYHT Joins a Select Group of Canadian Companies with CAAC Part-145 Approval

FLYHT Joins a Select Group of Canadian Companies with CAAC Part-145 Approval

Calgary, Alberta – December 1, 2016 – FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd. (TSX-V: FLY) (OTCQX: FLYLF) (the “Company” or “FLYHT”) today announced it has been granted CAAC Part-145 approval by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC).

The approval took almost two years to achieve and now allows FLYHT to repair Automated Flight Information Reporting System (AFIRSTM) units and return them to customers in China with an AAC-038 release certificate. The AAC-038 is a maintenance release document that allows for AFIRS 228 installation on Chinese-registered aircraft under the CAAC Part-145 approval. Previously, FLYHT supplied new units for warranty exchange, so this approval will improve efficiency and convenience for Chinese customers by allowing units to be repaired and returned.

“FLYHT joins only four other companies in Canada with CAAC Part-145 approval,” remarked Vinay Parmar, Quality Assurance Manager at FLYHT. “The approval is an added benefit to airlines and our customers in China who value CAAC approval.”

FLYHT does not require maintenance approval for countries with whom Canada has bi-lateral agreements as they accept authorized release certificates issued in Canada.  China is an important market for FLYHT and does not yet have a bi-lateral agreement with Canada that encompasses the release tags required so the ability to issue an AAC-038 release for repairs performed in Canada is beneficial.

This CAAC Part-145 approval is independent of the maintenance repair company contract in the Peoples Republic of China announced on November 28, 2016 and provides further service alternatives for our customers.
