Atlantic Aviation Group DOA Portable ELT Solution

Atlantic Aviation Group (AAG) Design Services announced this week that they now have the capability to provide the installation of a portable ELT solution. With the final release of EASA’s special condition on Non-rechargeable Lithium Battery Installations, it has become increasingly difficult to identify, classify and install equipment with lithium battery power sources.

AAG Design Services having recognised this, identified a new Techtest 500-32 series ELT which is compliant with the latest EASA requirements and working with their customers successfully received EASA approval for the installation of the new ELT unit which has the potential to be installed in any aircraft. Techtest, part of the HR Smith Group, is recognised as a world leader in the design and supply of ELT devices.

Minimal materials are required for the installation. The Supplied ELT has a very small form factor and can be installed within easy access to the cabin crew. The Techtest unit is compliant with rtca DO-227A / TSO-C142b and can be installed under a minor design change.

Based in Shannon, Atlantic Aviation Group is one of Europe’s leading independent MRO companies, offering customers a complete range of solutions including; aircraft maintenance & modifications, technical, engineering and design services, logistics and material solutions and international training and consultancy.
