Flyht revealed that L3Harris Technologies extended its partnership and agreement to provide custom engineering services used in global voice and data satcom solutions. Flyht will customize L3Harris AFIRSTM 228S (Automated Flight Information Recording System) to support global communications between pilots and Air Traffic Control (ATC), Aeronautical Operation Control (AOC) and Airline Administrative Control (AAC) through the Iridium high-fidelity satellite network used in the cockpit of the Airbus A220.

L3Harris is the prime contractor selected to provide AFIRS 228S integrated telecom and global voice and data communications using the Iridium satellite network. This network aims to provide high quality and high-fidelity voice and data connections globally, including across oceans and desolate regions.

“We are very excited to expand our relationship with L3Harris,” stated Tom Schmutz, CEO of Flyht Aerospace. “Extending our coverage to Airbus’ newest aircraft family member with L3Harris makes sense for both partners. Our relationship so far has resulted in the shipment of over 1,500 units to Airbus.”
