inNigeria to Install FLYHT AFIRS
FLYHT Aerospace Solutions, based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, signed a contract with inNigeria for its Automated Information Reporting System (AFIRS) 228 on five McDonnell Douglas MD-83s.
The airline will use AFIRS to provide real-time flight data monitoring and to assist in achieving maintenance and operational efficiencies. The customer will benefit from all AFIRS 228 features including automated Out, Off, On and In times, engine trending, airframe and engine exceedances, flight tracking and satellite voice communications, the company said.
“FLYHT is pleased to continue to support the Nigerian aviation community’s initiatives to increase safety and efficiency,” said Bill Tempany, CEO of FLYHT. “This contract continues to build on the NCAA’s vision for the Nigerian aviation industry. We are very happy to support the initiatives being taken by the regulators to improve operational safety through visibility of real time information on aircraft owned and operated in their airspace.”
FLYHT will provide equipment and services to the airline over a five year contract. Installations are anticipated to begin in the first quarter 2013.
