FreeFlight Systems “Win a RANGR” drawing at Oshkosh to offer certified ADS-B transceiver and installation credit

July 21 2016 - WACO, Texas - NextGen avionics leader FreeFlight Systems announced today the "Win a RANGR" promotion for U.S.-registered aircraft owners offering a grand prize of a top-of-the-line RANGR FDL-978-XVR ADS-B Universal Access Transceiver (UAT) as well as $2,500 towards the cost of installation. This year's giveaway at EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh, WI marks the sixth RANGR ADS-B system that FreeFlight Systems has awarded to contest participants.

Aircraft owners can view promotion details and enter to participate in the drawing to be held on July 29, 2016 during AirVenture at equipit2020.com/win. Participants do not have to be present at the drawing to win.

"Our 'Win A RANGR' promotion is an exciting opportunity to introduce our ADS-B systems to pilots who are searching for a solution," said FreeFlight Systems Sales and Marketing Director Pete Ring. "It's a great way for U.S. aircraft owners to learn more about their equipage options and how they can reap all of the benefits that ADS-B brings to flying."

"I am impressed with how well the system performs," said 2014 Win a RANGR winner Don Jeffries. "Installation of my RANGR-XVR was straight-forward - the system integrated seamlessly with my existing Mode C transponder."

FreeFlight Systems' RANGR series consists of fully-featured, TSO certified ADS-B solutions that automatically synchronize with legacy transponders without the need for additional pilot interaction, and as the RANGR operates on the 978 MHz datalink, the systems support anonymous mode for privacy. All RANGR systems go through rigorous environmental and functional checks, resulting in a mature and robust product. Every RANGR system is backed by FreeFlight Systems' standard five-year warranty, supporting customers beyond the FAA's January 1, 2020 ADS-B mandate.

FreeFlight Systems launches $500 Bridge Rebate Program for RANGR ADS-B and WAAS/GPS systems for all aircraft types

June 20, 2016 - WACO, Texas - NextGen avionics leader FreeFlight Systems announced today the Company is offering a five-hundred dollar rebate on its fully-featured ADS-B and WAAS/GPS solutions. FreeFlight Systems' Bridge Rebate Program offers customers cost savings on these products today, allowing them to take full advantage of ADS-B benefits immediately, instead of waiting for the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) ADS-B Rebate Program.

FreeFlight Systems' Bridge Rebate Program covers products from the Company's RANGR Blue and WAAS/GPS product families. Customers who purchase a FDL-978-XVR, FDL-978-XVR/G ADS-B system or a 1203C WAAS/GPS sensor, will receive a five-hundred dollar rebate after the system has been installed and a rebate form submitted. FreeFlight Systems is also offering a one-hundred dollar "Thank You" rebate for its customers who took delivery of eligible systems between January 1, 2016 and present day.

"We are excited that the FAA is launching an ADS-B rebate program that has reenergized the conversation around ADS-B equipage in general, and the specifics of the different datalinks, including the 978 UAT link's support of anonymous mode for privacy," said Tim Taylor, President and CEO of FreeFlight Systems. "We are pleased to expand the concept so that it is available immediately, includes all platform types and is applicable to all U.S. registered aircraft, irrespective of fleet size."

Since this is a Bridge Program, customers interested in participating must take delivery of their system by September 30th, 2016, or when the FAA's ADS-B Rebate Program goes live later this fall, whichever comes first. Additionally, the system must be installed before the end of the year.

Unlike the FAA's Program, FreeFlight Systems' Bridge Rebate extends to all fixed-wing and rotorcraft makes and models. Also, the FreeFlight Systems Program is available to all U.S. registered aircraft, and is not limited to "one per owner," opening the door to multi-aircraft operators, such as flight schools and fleets.

FreeFlight Systems' eligible ADS-B products are fully-featured, TSO certified and STC approved solutions that meet the FAA's ADS-B systems requirements for all aircraft, as defined in §14 CFR 91.225 and §14 CFR 91.227.

Full details of the FreeFlight Systems' Bridge Rebate Program are available at Equipit2020.com/rebate.

FreeFlight Systems receives section 333 exemption for ADS­-B systems testing on commercial UAS platforms

June 6 2016 ­- WACO, Texas ­ NextGen avionics leader FreeFlight Systems announced today that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has granted the Company a Section 333 exemption for the purpose of testing avionics specifically related to Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) integration into the National Airspace System (NAS). The 333 exemption allows FreeFlight Systems to test the Company's advanced, certified avionics that are designed to support safe commercial UAS operations, and which include both ADS-­B and radar altimetry applications.

A Section 333 exemption is the FAA's approval to operate UAS platforms commercially within a defined airspace. Using this approval and the Company's 300 acre flight test facility in conjunction with a host of applicable ground and airborne equipment, FreeFlight Systems is well positioned to advance ADS-­B applications in the UAS sector of the NAS. These include sense­-and-­avoid and other applications promoting safe UAS operation and manned / unmanned airspace integration.

"The grant of the 333 exemption is very important in providing us the opportunity to advance our proven, highly­-successful, certified manned aircraft solutions for UAS applications," said John DeBusk, FreeFlight Systems' Chief Technology Officer.

FreeFlight Systems has designed small, lightweight, and low­-power ADS-­B systems based on the Company's successful FAA-­certified RANGR line of ADS-­B products. FreeFlight Systems has been very active with NASA, several key Universities, the FAA and private industry in bringing these products to market.
