About Us – Flycom
Flycom Avionics was founded in 1991 by Dave Gray, a highly experienced engineer and former microlight flying instructor. Dissatisfied with the performance of existing communication systems available at the time, Dave utilised his knowledge of product design and acoustics coupled with the practical experience gained from over 20 years of microlight flying and instruction. The result was the FH-1V flying helmet, a design innovation which remains the original integrated flying helmet.
Originally based in Tyne & Wear, Flycom recently relocated its manufacturing base to larger premises in Worcestershire in response to increasing international demand.
Flycom Avionics was taken over by The Mel Group in early 2015, and is now based at Sudbury, Suffolk.
