Bayanat, a leading provider of AI-powered geospatial solutions, and UAE National Search and Rescue Center (NSRC), recently signed agreements with leading aviation services operators, enabling the successful deployment of the ELT system to enhance safety and aircraft tracking and rescue operations.

Bayanat and NSRC signed the agreements with Falcon Aviation, the leading business aviation services operator in the Middle East and Africa; Abu Dhabi Aviation, the largest commercial helicopter operator in the Middle East; and AeroGulf Services, the UAE’s premier commercial helicopter operator and aviation maintenance facility.

In signing this key agreement, ADA is proud to be the leader in ensuring that our fleet complies with the latest regulations and enhances safety in the region with this new ELT Registration and Testing Service.
