FreeFlight Systems has agreed to provide Bristow Group with the RANGR FDL-978TX ADS-B Out system for its fleet of AgustaWestland AW139s in the Gulf of Mexico. The system enables Houston air traffic control to track the helicopters outside the range of conventional radar, eliminating the need for flight crews flying in IFR conditions to supply manual position and direction reports. The ADS-B Out system received a supplemental type certificate (STC) earlier this year.
