Pilot Safety has never been easier with the new ARTEX ELT Pilot Kit

Oshkosh, Wisconsin on July 22, 2019 ACR Electronics, Inc. unveils their latest Survival Kit for Pilots available at EAA AirVenture, Oshkosh. The new ARTEX ELT Pilot Kit is the perfect combination of safety and survival products designed to keep aviators safe in an emergency. The ARTEX Pilot Kit provides aviators with one convenient kit to outfit their aircraft with the latest in 406 MHz survival technology including the best selling ELT 345 Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) along with new ResQLink 400 Personal Locator Beacon and key survival gear to provide a redundant system to alert Search and Rescue of their location.

The best selling ARTEX ELT 345 comes with a built-in GPS interface, remote switch, buzzer, antenna and aviation grade installation hardware and provides pilots with a cost-effective ELT upgrade solution to legacy 121.5 MHz ELTs that are no longer monitored by Search and Rescue Satellites, or as a replacement for other 406 MHz ELTs for the quality and value-minded aviator. The new ACR ResQLink™ 400 Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is included, which can easily be attached to clothing and taken on or off the aircraft. The 406 MHz PLB is the perfect companion for an ELT and provides pilots with the grab and go flexibility to take it with them on all their aviation and outdoor adventures.

To round out the Pilot Kit, ACR is including day and night visual distress signals with their C-Light™ H2O Rescue Light, a Signal Mirror, and the ResQ™ Whistle.

Jeffery Geraci, Vice President of Aviation Sales, ACR Electronics, said: “We developed this kit to provide a complete and cost-effective survival system tailored to the needs of aviation. The FAA and Cospas-Sarsat approved ELT 345 provides the same ARTEX quality at an industry leading price and when bundled with the ACR ResQLink 400 Personal Locator Beacon, C-Light, whistle, and Signal Mirror, the kit provides pilots and their families with the peace of mind and all the essential tools they need to be prepared for any circumstance.”
