Five-Year Renewal Continues Longstanding Relationship
Calgary, Alberta – August 1, 2023 – FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd. (“FLYHT”) (TSX-V: FLY) (OTCQX: FLYLF), today announced that it has signed a five-year contract renewal with one of its long-term charter customers to provide continuous software services to its entire fleet of Boeing 777 and 767 aircraft.
The charter airline, a FLYHT customer since 2009, has FLYHT’s AFIRS 220 and AFIRS 228B Iridium satcom hardware installed on its fleet of 14 Boeing 777-200ER, 767-300ER, and 767-200ER aircraft. Through FLYHT’s FLYHTHealth™, FLYHTLog™ and satcom voice services, the airline receives reports on aircraft system health, engine and airframe exceedances, engine trends, as well as aircraft tracking and voice services. Additionally, the airline customer is currently conducting a trial for CrossConsense’s visualization and maintenance alerting tool, ACSIS.
“We are honored that our long standing and deeply valued customer has signed on for continued FLYHT voice and data services as part of its ongoing effort to maintain and improve operational efficiency and safety,” commented Kent Jacobs, President & Interim CEO at FLYHT. “This long-term extension further validates the value that FLYHT provides to charter airlines, and we are eager to demonstrate additional services and capabilities in the future to deepen the engagement.”
With real-time threshold exceedance reports from AFIRS, airlines are notified immediately when a specific event has occurred. With real-time threshold exceedance alerts, airlines know in advance exactly when and where to look for events that may require immediate action or further investigation, such as engine over temps, engine over speeds, high vibrations, low oil pressure, hard landings, and flap over speeds, to name a few. Real-time threshold exceedance reports are completely configurable and enable proactive maintenance of customers’ aircraft, engines and life limited parts. This contract renewal is valued at approximately US$1.3 million, provided that all services are delivered over the five-year term of the agreement.
