FLHYT’s AFIRS 228 will be factory installed on the COMAC C-919 aircraft.
FLYHT Aerospace Solutions has signed a multi-year contract with Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC) for the installation of its AFIRS 228 flight information reporting system on the C-919 aircraft.
The C-919, which can seat up to 168 passengers, is a narrow-body commercial aircraft which aims to compete with the Boeing 737 and Airbus A320. It is in its final certification process with the Civil Aviation Administration of China. AFIRS will be used for communications during the cold weather certification due to be conducted in Canada. Currently COMAC has confirmed orders for 305 aircraft most of which are from Chinese leasing companies or airlines.
“With this agreement and initial order from COMAC, we build upon our strong customer base of OEMs and airlines in China where we currently service 31 airlines plus have many AFIRS units installed on aircraft through our partnership to supply a large European airframer,” says FLHYT interim CEO Bill Tempany. “FLYHT was chosen to be one of the suppliers to help get this new aircraft off the ground and the AFIRS technology was selected after careful evaluation, as COMAC seeks certification from international regulators.”
