New ELT

#1 Post by tazin river » Tue Mar 14, 2017 12:01 pm

Looks like I will need to install a new 406 ELT in our Cessna 180. Thinking of getting the ACK E-04 the ameri-king unti that can't no longer be recertified..

Is this a decent unit for the price?

How long is the battery coming with it good for? 5 years?

Cheers

Why would you go with an Ameri-King that can't be re-certified?

OK, I see now. Your sentence made it sound like the model number listed was an Ameri-King unit.
