L3Harris’ Flight Safety Support Service provides expert analysis and investigation capability enabling operators to release pilots from the office and allow the airline to focus on safe operations. The analysis provided to airlines will be led by L3Harris’ Rob Holliday, former head of operational safety at the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

Norwegian start-up airline Flyr AS, expected to launch during the summer of 2021, will serve as the first customer for the new service. The airline plans to expand to a fleet of 30 B737’s in the coming years.

The data this new service will analyze and investigate comes from L3Harris’ Flight Data Connect. This provides fast, accurate mapping of flights in graphical and 3D formats, with specific actionable insights generated by statistical models and machine learning. All data is aligned and tailored to each customers’ defined safety operating procedures.

“L3Harris is the largest provider of fully outsourced flight data analysis and safety services and this new service further enhances our capacity to support airlines,” said Alan Crawford, President of L3Harris Commercial Aviation. “We are driven to make the skies safer and believe this new service will play an important role in helping airlines such as Flyr AS achieve this goal.”

“As a newly launching airline we are excited to be working with L3Harris, who can safely and effectively coordinate the Flight Data Monitoring for our fleet. L3Harris’ expert analysis and investigation capability will enable FLYR to release pilots from the office and drive our safety operations.” Tom-Arild Bogstad Director Safety & Compliance at Flyr AS.
