Programmed aircraft information is essential for search & rescue, should the ELT be activated. When activated, the ELT will transmit your identifier.
An Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) should be programmed with either the aircraft tail #, a serial #, or the aircraft operator designator. The aircraft information programmed is determined by your country's requirements. The information is sent to the government agency responsible for keeping the database of the country in which your aircraft is registered.
The ID is linked to your SAR database, containing valuable aircraft information: Type of Aircraft, Address of Owner, Telephone # of Owner, Aircraft Registration #, and Alternate Emergency Contact, etc.
Keeping this information up to date & accurate is a major concern of the Search & Rescue Centers. Without accurate information, valuable time may be lost in attempting to locate the owner of the aircraft.
Your ELT can easily be programmed by a certified repair station, such as Southeast Aerospace.
