In relation to NE (New) parts, many OEMs change their prices and availability without any notice to dealers or the industry. Therefore, through the REQUEST or RFQ indication, we ask that customers contact us for the most accurate price and availability.

In relation to SV & OH parts, the used parts aftermarket in the aviation industry is not an infinite supply. It is a dynamic, constantly changing market that is significantly affected by and susceptible to highs and lows in supply and demand. Therefore, although we attempt to, at times, we are unable to predict the exact moment when an item may be available. Once again, through the REQUEST or RFQ indication on our website, we ask that customers contact us for the most current and accurate price and availability.

The CD-5000 control is a simple, smaller design that is used for the Basic models of RT-5000 (P/N 400-015525-0101/-0501 only). The CD-5000 is Pilot ready with basic flip flop operation and requires less training than the C-5000. The CD-5000 is limited in only controlling 1 RT-5000 and does not support room for growth or upgrade abilities.

On the other hand, the C-5000 is meant to be a RT-5000 and system controller, and is compatible with all RT-5000 models. The C-5000 is a larger design and operation is more involved, requiring Pilot training before use. In addition to more capabilities and functions, such as Relay, Repeat & Simulcast, the C-5000 can also control 2 RT-5000s from a single point.

Simply put, if you are looking for basic functions, while only using 1 RT-5000, the CD-5000 is more than adequate for your needs. You can find more detailed information on these systems on their SEA product pages: CD-5000 / C-5000.

Due to the lack of availability and high price of the Collins ARC-182 tactical radios, Southeast Aerospace recommends the more available, capable, and cost effective Cobham Flexcomm II RT-5000 as a more ideal solution for tactical radio requirements. Paired with the compact CD-5000, the RT-5000 offers radio communications in the range of 29.7-960 MHz depending on the antenna configuration. The CD-5000 is straightforward and easy to use.

Guard is a term used to describe a special option on tactical radios. This special option is a dual monitoring system that continually monitors emergency channels (either a preset or selected channel, depending on unit options) for broadcasts, while still receiving on the main receiver. The radio will annunciate a notice when there is a broadcast on the emergency channel. Annunciation type depends on the particular unit and set up options.

This feature is particularly useful for search and rescue mission aircraft.
