The world of business jet management requires precision, reliability and competence. High net worth individuals understand that time is very valuable. These individuals run multi-billion dollar organizations and need to travel around the globe, sometimes at a moment’s notice. Companies that manage business jets need to ensure their customers’ aircraft are always ready to fly when their passengers want to fly.
FLYHT’s technology, the Automated Flight Information Reporting System (AFIRSTM), which uses Iridium technology, aids in the management of aircraft by providing real-time information on the state of the aircraft. With AFIRS onboard, the operator can be sure they know the state of the aircraft and ensure their customers get to where they need to be.
When we say Iridium enables connections anywhere in the world, we really mean it. Recently, Yahoo! reported that Christophe Vandaele became the second person in history (the first was arctic adventurer, Parker Liautaud) to unlock foursquare’s “Last Degree Badge” which is awarded to users who check in at the North Pole.
Recently, Beam Communications received certification by Iridium to use Beam’s LiteDOCK for the Iridium Extreme®. Beam is the first manufacturer in the world to receive the official certification of a docking unit for the handset.
We always get excited when Iridium products are mentioned in the news! Last month, Outdoor Life mentioned the Iridium Extreme® in its feature, “Surviving Anything.” The article focuses on the tools you need to make it through life threatening situations.
Last month, General Bob Dickman announced AIAA and the Iridium NEXT Mission Team launched a $250,000 scholarship endowment program – one of the largest in the industry. And, this month, we are excited announce the official call for applications.
