[Avionics Today 05-18-2016] Flyht Aerospace Solutions has received Supplemental Type Certificates (STCs) for the Automated Flight Information Reporting System (AFIRS) 228 on multiple aircraft types. The approved aircraft types include the ATR 42-500 600 version and the ATR 72-212A 600 version from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the Boeing B757-200 aircraft from the FAA, and the Transport Canada Civil Aviation (TCCA) STC for the Bombardier DHC 8 -100, 200, and 300 series aircraft.
The ATR STCs enable an unnamed Flyht customer to install the AFIRS 228 on their newly acquired ATR aircraft. Four of the aircraft will come online with AFIRS 228 within the month, contributing to a total of 10 new aircraft that will enter into service by the end of 2016.
Flyht currently holds more than 75 STCs, which allow for AFIRS installation on more than 95 percent of commercial aircraft.
