Flightcell International Ltd has won Aviation New Zealand’s supreme Company Award. The Company Award recognizes the outstanding performance and contribution to the growth of the aviation industry. This follows a similar success in 2016 when Flightcell won Aviation New Zealand’s “Excellence in Innovation Award.”
Lloyd Matheson, president of Aviation NZ, had this to say about Flightcell: “This company has been in business for over 20 years. It has deliberately focused on high quality hardware and application firmware. This differentiates it from the competition. . . . Its customers read like an aviation who’s who. . . . Some of [Flightcell’s] new technology has been industry and world firsts. Many operational and safety benefits have been delivered to customers. And in today’s global economy, manufacturing and support services remain in New Zealand.”
John Wyllie, founder and CEO of Flightcell International, was thrilled to receive the award and he acknowledged the support provided by the New Zealand aviation community.
