Sierra Nevada Corporation and FLYHT announce renewed strategic relationship
Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) and FLYHT Aerospace Solutions reported that the companies have renewed their strategic relationship by updating their license and manufacturing agreement and adding a value-added reseller agreement. The relationship involves FLYHT’s Automated Flight Information Reporting System, or AFIRS product and services. The AFIRS system operates on multiple aircraft types and provides functions including aircraft position, on-demand streaming of black box data, voice and text messaging, and data collection and transmission. AFIRS sends that information to its companion, UpTime, the ground service product, which stores and transfers the data to the customer in real time. Aircraft operators can use this information to increase safety, improve service, and enhance profitability. FLYHT will continue to lead sales and service activities in all civil aviation markets, and SNC will lead sales in the United States and NATO military and government manned and unmanned aircraft markets.
