FLYHT Receives Airbus A320 Certification for AFIRS from the European Aviation Safety Agency
Calgary, Alberta … November 19, 2014 FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd. has received a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for its Automated Flight Information Reporting System (AFIRS) 228 on the Airbus A320 series aircraft from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
“This STC opens many doors for the AFIRS 228,” commented Jeff Brunner, FLYHT’s vice president of certification engineering & China operations. “Many smaller countries and leasing companies accept approval from the state of manufacture to install equipment such as AFIRS.”
An STC constitutes regulatory approval to modify an aircraft’s design while retaining airworthiness certification and is necessary to permit retrofit installation of aeronautical products such as AFIRS. A full list of FLYHT’s STCs is available on the company’s website.
