In 1995, frustrated that he could not use his cellphone while flying his helicopter, New Zealand pilot John Wyllie developed a device he called 'Flightcell' - the world’s first cellphone to headset interface. Interest in his product was immediate, so John took his invention to the world and has since been at the forefront of aviation communications integration technology, developing the Flightcell Pro and Flightcell DZM systems now fitted to an amazing range of international civil and military aircraft as specified equipment or options including some aircraft well-known to members such as the C130J, the A109 helicopter and the T6 Texan II. Today there are over 3500 Flightcell systems in service worldwide, and Flightcell supply numerous high profile customers - such as the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, California Highway Patrol, LA Sheriff’s Department, Texas Department of Public Safety, Royal Flying Doctors, Colombian Airforce and the U.S. Department of State - with mission critical cellular and satellite communication and aircraft tracking systems. John is now the very hands-on CEO of this very successful
