Aero-TV: Kannad 406 ELTs -- The Next Generation

Have YOU Upgraded YOUR ELT?

While perusing the wares at the most recent iteration of the AEA Convention and Toy Show (grin), there was no end to the glitzy, exciting goodies that pilots absolutely love to play with.

Not so noticeable, though, were the latest generation of ELTs... not nearly as sexy as the latest glass panels.. its easy to forget all about them until you wind up in a stricken bird down in the boonies wondering is ANYONE is on their way to retrieve you.

Mind you, NOAA notes that most aircraft operators are mandated to carry an ELT though they still have the option to choose between either a 121.5 MHz ELT or a 406 MHz ELT. The FAA has studied the issue of mandating carriage of 406 MHz ELTs.

The study indicates that 134 extra lives and millions of dollars in SAR resources could be saved per year. The only problem is that 406 MHz ELTs currently cost a bit more than 121.5 MHz ELTs, though we note that the gap is starting to close. Still, negating the cost differential, its hard to deny that 406 MHz ELT make for a compelling safety investment.

Kannad specializes in the design of positioning, measuring and data transmission systems in hostile environment and is a 'leader in the field of maritime, aeronautical and land-based distress beacons.' So... let's talk about the next generation of 406 MHz ELTs with our friends at Kannad.
