FLYHT Reports First Quarter Results

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/13/14 -- FLYHT Aerospace Solutions Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: FLY) (the "Company" or "FLYHT") a leading provider of real-time data communications technology for the aviation industry today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

"Q1 was a mixed emotions type of quarter. We received the first payment for shipments to China on the order out of the 218 units announced in November. Those payments don't show up in revenue in accordance with our revenue recognition policies, so Q1 revenues are below where we would have liked them. On the other hand, costs were also lower so the modified working capital improved and that is very significant for us. We intend to keep the pressure on decreasing costs while increasing our focus on sales and now that our products are certified and being delivered to our customers, we are confident the revenues will grow and costs will remain in check to provide the kind of returns our shareholders expect," stated Bill Tempany, Chief Executive Officer of FLYHT.

First Quarter Highlights Include:

--  Revenue of $1,348,786 which represents a decrease of 21.5% over the same
    period last year.
--  Customer deposits of $1,304,721 an increase of 100.2% over the first
    quarter of 2013.

    of 12.9% over the first quarter of 2013.

    $434,695, which if removed would have resulted in a net loss of
    $838,406, an increase of 31.2% and an increase of 197.7% respectfully
    over the first quarter of 2013.
--  Distribution expenses were $780,050, representing an increase of $99,185
