Calgary, Alberta – November 2, 2017 – FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd. (TSX-V: FLY) (OTCQX: FLYLD) (the “Company” or “FLYHT”), the leading provider of real-time data streaming technology that enhances the efficiency and safety of aircraft, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017.
“Shortfalls in Parts and Voice & Data Services (V&DS) lowered revenue in the third quarter,” stated Thomas R. Schmutz, Chief Executive Officer of FLYHT. “Also, as we cautioned in our October 3, 2017 quarterly sales update, unforeseen delays in obtaining STC approvals deferred the recognition of some AFIRS hardware revenue, thus limiting growth in this product category.” Schmutz added, “Despite this quarter’s revenue decline, FLYHT’s revenue is trending above last year on a year-to-date basis, we continue to generate cash from operating activities and finished the quarter with a strong cash position, and we continue to build upon our $27M backlog of AFIRS hardware and V&DS revenue as we win more business around the world.”
