A pretty good read with a few details on the "Dragon" implementation.

I'm sort of wondering when they will report Q4?



In November 2013, the company rolled out its next generation Dragon system (pictured above).

The Dragon system is described as a "revolutionary, lightweight, portable satellite communications device that blends existing FLYHT technology with that of the iPad. FLYHT developed the new product to meet a growing demand from small aircraft, business jet and helicopter operators for a satellite communications solution similar to AFIRS™. Management at FLYHT believes the Dragon enables a new level of connectivity, previously not available to small operators.

The device is portable, allowing operators the flexibility to use it where and when they need it.

Because the Dragon is not installed on the aircraft, there is no need for Supplemental Type Certificates ("STCs"), which are costly and take time to secure. Features of the Dragon include those of FLYHT's other innovative products designed for the commercial aviation industry, re-engineered for a unique market. The Dragon allows real-time voice and data communications enabled by the Iridium Satellite Network connected through the cockpit and the pilot's headset, though does not have data analysis or the safety services capabilities of other AFIRS products.

An iPad application acts as an interface for the user in the cockpit to send and receive messages, such as weather updates, from the ground. Another key feature is flight following, so operators always know where their assets are in the sky.
