"The FAA in the U.S. and EASA in Europe are the largest certification authorities as well as the most recognized," commented Jeff Brunner, FLYHT's Vice President of Certification Engineering & China Operations. "Many smaller countries and leasing companies accept approval from the state of manufacture to install equipment such as AFIRS so this STC opens many doors to potential customers."

There are currently two prospective customers who will potentially take advantage of this STC to utilize AFIRS and allow for full certification on their aircraft.
