Calgary, Alberta – March 9, 2023 – FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd. (TSX-V: FLY) (OTCQX: FLYLF) (the “Company” or “FLYHT”) today announced receipt of a Supplemental Type Certificate (“STC”) revision from Transport Canada to install the AFIRS™ 228 on Boeing 737 MAX-8 aircraft.

“Receiving this STC certification for one of the world’s most popular aircraft types is a milestone achievement for FLYHT and will allow us to complete installations on 40 of our customers’ aircraft in our contracted backlog,” said Kent Jacobs, President & Interim CEO of FLYHT. “This STC shows the continued strength in our AFIRS 228 product line as we get ready for our first 5G AFIRS Edge installations.”
