Today, when an airplane goes in for a re-fit of its instrumentation, weeks of planning, re-wiring, tests, and re-work take place.
Born out of frustration, Flight Hub condenses weeks of labor, eliminate thousands of brittle in-line connections, and simplifies the physical installation process. When a plane comes into a shop for a major retrofit, instead of re-crimping hundreds of tiny, brittle old wires, the old wiring is removed and pre-assembled wiring harnesses are put in their place. The result is a tidy panel, rock solid connections, component redundancy, and a level of reliability that’s never been seen before in the space. The customer is happy with the cost savings/ turn-around time, and the installer is happy with the elimination of re-work that robs shops of their profitability.
I look forward to our show with Richard Hardin and learning more about his business plan to go after a $3 billion market. We will learn how he came up with this idea and his team to execute this plan.
Thanks for visiting John Martin’s Small Business Roundtable
