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.
Often times, Iridium works behind the scenes as a catalyst for technological innovation. We provide products to our partners who then create new devices and solutions that change the way we communicate worldwide.
The Iridium® Core 9523 is a perfect example of this and, recently, we made it available for commercial use as part of our Iridium Force strategy. This is our unique vision for using the power of the world’s furthest reaching network to bring extended and enhanced personal communications to people and organizations, everywhere.
