Calgary, Alberta – November 7, 2018 – FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd. (TSX-V: FLY) (OTCQX: FLYLF) (the “Company” or “FLYHT”), the leading provider of real-time data streaming and communication technologies in the aerospace industry, has reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.
“FLYHT is demonstrating quarterly organic growth in our Software as a Service (SaaS) revenue category,” remarked Tom Schmutz, CEO of FLYHT. “Moving forward, this organic growth will be augmented with service contracts acquired from Panasonic Weather Solutions (“PWS“) (see press release dated October 10, 2018 announcing PWS assets acquisition (the “PWS Assets Acquisition”)), allowing for faster SaaS growth.”
FLYHT’s next quarter results will include, among other things, the financial impact from the PWS Asset Acquisition, being: FLYHT having received one-third of the USD$3.3 million Panasonic Avionics Corporation subsidy payment as at the acquisition close date, an immediate increase in SaaS revenues from the 10 PWS airline service contracts, SaaS revenue from a USD$2 million per year contract for weather data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration via Synoptic Data PBC, and the assets and associated expenses from the acquisition.
Schmutz went on to say, “Further revenue growth will come in 2019 from hardware shipments and SaaS additions as additional aircraft are placed into service from the $20 million backlog acquired in the PWS Assets Acquisition.”
Following this acquisition, FLYHT’s contracted backlog of undelivered Hardware and SaaS stands at just over $44 million.
Third Quarter financial results include:

About FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd.
2018 marks FLYHT’s 20th anniversary as a leader in real-time aircraft data streaming. FLYHT’s mission is to improve aviation safety, efficiency and profitability (located in Calgary, Canada; publicly traded as: FLY:TSX.V; FLYLF:OTCQX).

The solution is used to capture, process and stream aircraft data providing real-time alerts. AFIRS sends this information through satellite networks to FLYHT’s UpTime™ Cloud data center, which gives aircraft operators direct insight into the operational status and health of their aircraft, which in turn enables them to take corrective action to maintain the highest standard of operational control. The company recently acquired the assets of Panasonic Weather Services, including FlightLink™ Iridium Satellite Data Unit and Tropospheric Airborne Meteorological Data Reporting (TAMDAR™) sensor.
