Fly safe with the Kannad Aviation range of ELTs
With a full suite of TSO’d 406MHz ELTs and a worldwide network of runway-based service centres, Kannad Aviation brings you two decades of emergency beacon know-how and a level of support second-to-none in the industry.
Kannad ELTs are fitted to a wide variety of commercial aircraft including Airbus, Boeing, ATR, BAE, Bombardier, Canadair, Dornier, Embraer, Gulfstream, McDonnel Douglas, Antonov, Illushin, Shorts and Tupolev.
Central to the Kannad Aviation ELT system for fleet operators is the concept of the programmable dongle, which stays with the aircraft, not the ELT. When a product is removed for service it can be replaced with any other Kannad ELT, and as soon as the dongle is connected, all the relevant programming information for the aircraft is uploaded to the ELT. This significantly reduces or even eliminates AOG time due to ELT service.
