Tuesday, 3 May 2022

FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd. (TSX-V: FLY) (OTCQX: FLYLF) (the “Company” or “FLYHT”) today announced a cooperation with MBS Electronic Systems GmbH (“MBS”), a leading provider of secure data loading solutions that enable compliant avionics software maintenance and safer flight operations. The two companies have collaborated to develop a secure wireless avionics software and onboard data loading solution with the goal of enabling customers to fully comply with new security requirements.

Stated Kent Jacobs, President of FLYHT, “Airlines have been seeking secure data loading that makes for a lower cost and quicker installation and meets all regulator requirements. This partnership with MBS enables us to combine our AFIRS Edge platform, an advanced secure avionics data repository, with an advanced avionics data loader capability provided by the experts at MBS. Together, this creates a streamlined, secure solution for airlines to utilize, complying with secure data requirements and improving operating efficiency.”

Added Dr. Charles Nicholls, Technical Director at MBS, “As a leader in the secure portable data loader field, we have seen increased demand from airlines for an onboard solution that meets the guidance of ARINC 645-1. Together with FLYHT, we can service this growing need among the airlines.”

Added Willie Cecil, Sales Director at FLYHT, “Both companies' technologies are so mature that an initial prototype solution was developed and will be demonstrated in Memphis. We are excited by airline interest in our solution, and we plan to qualify and certify the solution within the next six months.”

FLYHT and MBS plan to showcase the new solution to airlines at the annual Aviation Maintenance Conference in Memphis on May 10-12, 2022. This collaboration offers the opportunity to evaluate the strength of a combined solution, with the intention to solidify a financial arrangement following the Memphis event.
