Calgary, Alberta and Gilching Germany May 16, 2024 – FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd(TSX-V: FLY) (OTCQX: FLYLF) (the “Company” or “FLYHT”) today announced a partnership with MBS Electronic Systems GmbH & Co. KG  (“MBS”), a leading provider of secure data loading solutions that enable compliant avionics software maintenance and safer flight operations.

Stated William Cecil, Senior Sales Director at FLYHT, “Airlines are seeking airborne data loading and data transfer solutions that meet new cyber security requirements. This partnership exemplifies FLYHT’s “best of breed” technology strategy and we’re excited to combine MBS’ data loading technology with FLYHT’s industry first 5G AFIRS Edge platform hardware. With our combined expertise, we have created a streamlined, secure turn-key solution for airlines based on a single unit that gives airlines a fast path to complying with aircraft software security requirements and improving maintenance efficiency.”

Added Thomas Nicholls, Technical Lead at MBS, “As a leader in the secure portable data loader field, we have seen increased demand from airlines for a “plug-in” onboard data loading solution that meets the guidance of ARINC 645-1 for software distribution and loading. Together with FLYHT, we look forward to serving this growing need among the airlines.”

FLYHT and MBS plan to showcase the new solution to airlines at upcoming shows, including the annual Airlines Electronic Engineering Committee (AEEC) General Session and Aviation Maintenance Conference (AMC) in Phoenix on May 19-22, 2024 (https://aviation-ia.sae-itc.com/events/aeec-amc), as well as the Aircraft Commerce MRO & Flight Operations IT Conference – EMEA in Amsterdam, June 4-5, 2024 (2024 Airline & Aerospace MRO & Flight Operations IT Conference EMEA – Aircraft Commerce (aircraftcommerceevents.com).

The AFIRS Edge is an aircraft interface device (AID), connecting aircraft data with electronic flight bag (EFB) applications and providing airlines with Wireless Quick Access (WQAR) capabilities, all while serving as a gateway on the aircraft for critical real-time information and onboard data storage. The Edge also serves as a data port for FLYHT’s actionable intelligence services, such as fuel management, aircraft health monitoring, real-time engine data reporting and airport gate performance monitoring. Further, when coupled with a real-time IP satellite connection, the Edge enables weather data customers to work with airlines to implement FLYHT’s weather solutions for enabling enhanced weather forecasting capabilities, providing more accurate and timely warnings of extreme weather, and in the detection and avoidance of contrail generation.
