Naviter and Flytec ‘bundle strengths’ in tech takeover

Naviter / Flytec

Naviter have bought Flytec. In a statement released to coincide with the international free-flight festival the Coupe Icare, which is this coming weekend, Flytec said the deal will “guarantee” the Flytec range will continue to be developed.

The email statement says:

Flytec, the oldest brand of varios for paragliding and hang glider pilots, and Naviter, known for their innovative Oudie and SeeYou products for thermal pilots, bundle their strengths. Naviter adds Flytec varios to their current range and guarantees their further development.

“Naviter has so far been known for their software and their excellent client service, which suits us perfectly”, says Jörg Ewald, managing director of Flytec.

Andrej Kolar of Naviter is excited to take over “Flytec’s great expertise in hardware”, and to combine the products of the two brands into a complete vario range over the coming months. Both agree: “We look forward to being able to build even better varios in the future.”

Both companies are committed to minimising any disruption to pilots and dealers. All current instruments will be supported, warranties will remain valid and repairs will be handled as usual.

Flytec Repair Centres will soon also repair Naviter varios, and vice versa, Naviter will offer a repair service for current Flytec varios. Pilots will be able to order their varios from their usual shop. All in all, almost nothing will change for you.

At the Coupe Icare from September 22nd to 25th 2016, the two brands present themselves together for the first time. We are available for an exchange with pilots, dealers, partners, and media at stand J14 in the Barish Pavillon. Looking forward to seeing you there!
