FLYHT Receives STC Certification for the AFIRS Edge(TM) on Boeing 737 NG Aircraft

CALGARY, AB/ June 11, 2024 / FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd. (“FLYHT” or the “Company”) (TSXV:FLY)(OTCQX:FLYLF) today announced that Transport Canada has issued FLYHT a Supplemental Type Certificate (“STC”) for the flange version of the AFIRS EdgeTM, the Company’s 5G wireless data communication device, for Boeing 737 NG aircraft. The achievement of this STC enables FLYHT to ship the Edge units to Canadian Boeing 737 NG customers while at the same time familiarizing the Canadian STC into other jurisdictions to enable worldwide distribution.

“Today marks another milestone achievement for FLYHT as we announce Transport Canada’s issuance of an STC for the Edge on a second aircraft type,” said Kent Jacobs, President and Interim CEO of FLYHT. “This represents the second STC approval for the flange version of the AFIRS Edge this year. I continue to be proud of our entire team and grateful to our airline partner, Air North, and Transport Canada for their efforts to complete a comprehensive and robust certification process.”

Jacobs added, “We are now in a leadership position to provide the aviation industry’s first wireless data and communications device with 5G capability on the two most popular aircraft types, the Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 NG.”

“We are excited to partner with FLYHT on the STC certification process using their innovative 5G wireless data on our Boeing 737 NG aircraft,” commented Joe Sparling, President and CEO of Air North. “We are an innovative airline and recognize the value proposition that the AFIRS Edge provides with its next generation technology.”

Per the agreement signed in October 2023, Air North has agreed to purchase FLYHT’s innovative hardware and software services as part of the Yukon airline’s fleet renewal plans. Specifically, FLYHT’s AFIRS 228 Iridium SatCom and AFIRS Edge solutions will be installed on Air North’s Boeing 737 NG aircraft as it renews its Boeing 737 Classic fleet.

The AFIRS Edge is an aircraft interface device (AID), connecting aircraft data with electronic flight bag (EFB) applications and provides 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.
