[Avionics Today 12-30-2015] The National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) of Brazil has awarded Flyht Aerospace Solutions a Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for its Automated Flight Information Reporting System (AFIRS) 228 on the Boeing 737 Classic and 737 Next Generation series aircraft.

AFIRS 228 is designed to provide a fully certified avionics platform capable of meeting all air navigation communications requirements in Europe, the United States and other jurisdictions around the world. It also provides the input and outputs necessary to enhance the value of real-time data for Flyht's customers globally. The AFIRS 228 enables the FLYHTStream application to provide real-time black box data streaming.

In addition, the company received a re-issued Transport Canada STC, adding the ATR-500 model for AFIRS 228 certification to the STC previously issued. The certificate will be used to install AFIRS on an existing Canadian customer's newly acquired aircraft for routes in Canada.

"We continue to expand and develop AFIRS 228 STCs to reach popular aircraft types in operation by several of our existing customers as well as prospective customers," said Thomas R. Schmutz, CEO of Flyht.
