Designing, manufacturing, selling, and supporting high-integrity avionics systems, FreeFlight Systems is an active and proud member of the Aircraft Electronics Association (AEA), the voice of the general aviation aircraft electronics industry.
Founded in 1957, the AEA has a long-standing history of representing member companies, including maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) facilities, manufacturers of avionics equipment, instrument repair facilities, instrument manufacturers, airframe manufacturers, test equipment manufacturers, major distributors, engineers, and educational institutions. The AEA represents nearly 1,300 member companies in more than 40 countries.
AEA’s mission is to be a worldwide, self-sustaining organization committed to enhancing the profitability of its members by providing effective leadership to its members, facilitating the communications between members, encouraging members to establish critical quality processes, furthering the education of its members, and influencing the applicable legislative and regulatory processes. The AEA brings members together by hosting several events throughout the year. While the AEA hosts several smaller conferences in the US, South Pacific, and Europe, the most notable event is their convention and trade show occurring annually since 1957. As a member, FreeFlight Systems annually attends AEA’s convention to exhibit their robust and reliable products.
FreeFlight Systems’ Role in the Aircraft Electronics Industry
FreeFlight Systems specializes in technologies and solutions that bring the benefits of the NextGen airspace transformation to all segments of aerospace. With the aim of improving the safety, efficiency, and affordability of flying, FreeFlight Systems designs, manufactures, sells, and supports high-integrity avionics systems. With modular and scalable products that can be used as stand-alone or as fully integrated systems, FreeFlight Systems offers solutions for fixed-wing aircraft, rotor-wing, and UAVs. FreeFlight Systems is an industry leader for radar altimetry and Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) solutions that improve situational awareness, aircraft visibility, and ultimately flight safety. FreeFlight Systems offers a wide range of reliable and robust radar altimeters as well as ADS-B ground systems, receivers, and transponders. In addition, FreeFlight has recently launched the world’s first 5G-tolerant radar altimeters, the TERRAIN series, which feature an AMOC radius of ~0.1NM.
Offering these high-integrity avionics, FreeFlight Systems significantly contributes to the general aviation aircraft electronics industry. FreeFlight Systems is a proud member of the AEA and the aviation community at large.
