ELT 121.5 Services

An Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) is a device that transmits a distress signal to aid in the detection and location of aircrafts. An ELT can be manually or automatically activated. ELTs that activate automatically use a G-Switch that triggers the ELT. Once the ELT is activated and a distress signal is detected, it is used to locate the aircraft by triangulation.

NOTE: Cospas-Sarsat has ceased satellite monitoring of 121.5 MHz beacons on February 1 2009.

TSO C91A prescribes the minimum performance standard that an ELT operating on 121.5 and 243 MHz must meet.

ELT 121.5 Certification Service

All ELTs are performance tested and certified in accordance with Transport Canada Regulations (Chapter 571 Appendix G).

We issue a Transport Canada (Form One) Certification Form with each ELT.

Our service will include the replacement of batteries, if required and/or upon request.

Your ELT will be externally cleaned (within reason) whenever possible in order to enhance its appearance and to make it easier for handling.

We can perform minor repairs on your ELT in house, but for major repairs we will send it out to the manufacturers on your behalf if requested.
