Changes to Emergency Locator Transmitter Use25/08/16
As of 25 August 2016, EASA Air Operations Regulations came fully into effect. Prior to this only Commercial Air Operations, not training flights, would have to have an Emergency Locator Transmitter on board the aircraft, either in fixed format built into he aircraft or in the form of a PLB, a Personal Locator Beacon.
If in an emergency situation, the locator is activated a transmission is sent to an internationally recognised frequency, your position is logged and help is sent.
This new law now means that all flights, passenger or training or private need now to carry a Emergency Locator Transmitter; all our aircraft at Bliss now have one.
