Manager, Customer Engineering and V&V

FLYHT provides an opportunity to deliver cutting-edge products for the global aviation industry, a unique opportunity in Alberta. FLYHT leads the industry with our patented black box streaming technology and focuses on customer satisfaction and profitability as keys to success.

FLYHT’s mission is to improve aviation safety, efficiency and profitability (located in Calgary, Canada; publicly traded as: FLY:TSX.V; FLYLF:OTCQX). Airlines, leasing companies, fractional owners and original equipment manufacturers have installed the Automated Flight Information Reporting System (AFIRSTM) on their aircraft to capture, process and stream aircraft data with real-time alerts. AFIRS sends this information through satellite networks to the UpTimeTM cloud-based data center, which provides aircraft operators with direct insight into the operational status and health of their aircraft and enables them to take corrective action to maintain the highest standard of operational control.

The Company fosters a community-driven work environment with the opportunity to contribute directly to the success and achievement of the Company’s goals and objectives. FLYHT offers comprehensive benefits and a 9/80 work week which provides flexibility with every other Friday off.
