Brazil aviation authorities have granted Guardian Mobility a Brazilian Supplemental Type Certificate (CHST) for its line of Guardian 3 flight tracking products on Eurocopter AS 350 and 355 model aircraft. This CHST will complement existing FAA and Transport Canada STCs on the same model aircraft which are used by operators worldwide.
Numerous Brazilian operators have awaited this certification to complete their fleet-wide deployment of Guardian 3 products for reasons of increased safety, fleet visibility and operational efficiencies. Jean Carr, President and CEO of Guardian Mobility, says, â€œThis certification is one of a number of investments that we are making to support our customers in Brazil. Our recent decision to offer customer support in Portuguese has generated a positive response from the market.â€
The certification has been granted as a result of Brazilian operatorsâ€™ increased use of and interest in Guardian Mobility products, and will give operators access to real-time and historical GPS aircraft tracking information through a secure web-based map.
