FLYHT Aerospace Solutions was selected by a second Middle Eastern air force to supply its automated flight information reporting system (AFIRS) 228 systems as upgrades for 7 C-130 Hercules military transport aircraft.
The air force reportedly is under a $250,000 ongoing service agreement with FLYHT, who did not disclose the name of the country. FLYHT is scheduled to begin delivery of the new components in the third quarter.
The company is looking to form more similar agreements, as it reports that more 5,000 C-130s worldwide will “likely require avionics upgrades in the next few years.”
