Flightcom announces new wireless aircraft systems

26th July 2011 - 04:57 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Flightcom, a leader in innovative team communication solutions for aviation environments, today announced the availability of wireless aviation headset systems specifically designed to meet crew communication requirements for military aircraft marshalling, de-icing, maintenance and loadmaster operations.

"Military ground support operations demand systems that provide the highest reliability and durability," Executive Vice President Reed Stager said. "We are especially pleased to provide these new wireless team communication systems for military aircraft ground operations to increase crew effectiveness, productivity and safety. Our new Flightcom wireless solutions deliver longer range, higher performance and a warranty that is three times longer than competitive offerings."

The hands-free wireless aircraft marshalling system continuously connects all members of the marshalling crew with full-duplex communication up to a 1600-foot range, ensuring high team effectiveness and safety. Completely cordless and hands-free operation leaves marshallers free to signal aircraft movements via traditional hand/arm movements while maximizing personal safety around moving aircraft with instant communication, including real-time verbal warnings. Optionally, crew members can also seamlessly communicate through their wireless headsets with pilots or controllers via portable radios or the mobile radios in their vehicles.

Flightcom's military de-icing solution ensures continuous communication between the spray operator and the truck driver or with dispatch through the truck's radio while allowing the spray operator freedom of movement to focus only on de-icing tasks. Aircraft maintenance solutions are available to support wireless communication and task coordination among multiple personnel working together in and around airframes. Loadmaster crews can benefit from continuous full-duplex wireless communication while having their hands free to complete their tasks. As with the maintenance solutions, wireless communication is supported within, outside and around the aircraft to maximize crew effectiveness and safety.

Flightcom's wireless solutions are encrypted for secure communication. In addition, all military wireless headsets offer 24db to 26db of hearing protection to reduce the risk of hearing loss in noisy environments, such as flight line operations. The newest Flightcom wireless headsets also include long-life batteries with quick recharge times and very stable charge retention to ensure they are ready to perform when needed. Headsets, intercoms and other key products in all Flightcom military systems are backed by three-year enhanced service and warranty plans.
