PORTLAND, Ore. (PRWEB) November 01, 2012

Flightcom, a leader in communication solutions for aviation, today announced that the United States Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) has awarded the largest order to-date for E-13ANR aviation headsets. Widely deployed for use on C-5, KC-135, C 130, and other airframes, the E 13ANR headset is in demand for excellent passive and active noise reduction (ANR), long-wearing comfort, durability, and extra features such as auxiliary inputs and long ANR battery life. The E-13 program has been running for over eight years, supplying superbly engineered and affordable communication products to the military.

“The ongoing success of the Flightcom E-13 program illustrates that high-performance equipment carefully engineered for durability and value is welcomed by the military in these times of budget constraints,” said Tim O'Brien, Flightcom director of sales. “The rugged E-13ANR and its E-13 Passive Noise Reduction cousin are engineered for flight use, with other Flightcom headsets available for use in mobile and other ground applications.”
