Can a new ELT be flown temporarily with its portable antenna (provided it is not loose in the aircraft and that it is solidly attached inside somewhere) until it can get rigged properly with its external antenna, brackett, remote switch, etc, etc

Thanks

I would say that until it is completely and permanently installed using the appropriate data, that you would require a flight permit.

Unless it falls within CAR 605 where it is not required.

AP (automatic portable) ELTs are still ELTs. If your installation manual has data for installing it as an AP ELT then no problem. If not then I don't see any way around having to install it as AF with the remote antenna.

In short, no.

However, you could defer it for 30 days. That should give enough time to get it installed.

605.39 (1) An aircraft that is required to be equipped with one or more ELTs under section 605.38 may be operated without a serviceable ELT if the operator

(a) repairs the ELT or removes it from the aircraft at the first aerodrome at which repairs or removal can be accomplished;

(b) on removal of the ELT, sends the ELT to a maintenance facility; and

(c) displays on a readily visible placard within the aircraft cockpit, until the ELT is replaced, a notice stating that the ELT has been removed and setting out the date of its removal.

(2) If an aircraft is required to have one ELT under section 605.38, the operator shall re-equip the aircraft with a serviceable ELT within

(a) 10 days after the date of removal, if the aircraft is operated under Subpart 4 or 5 of Part VII; or

(b) 30 days after the date of removal in the case of any other aircraft.
