|Pilots are known for being prepared. That means being without a backup plan is not an option. SkyGeek stocks essential aviation tools like the personal locator beacons ACR PLB, ACR PLBS and ACR EPIRB. The Geeks know that when you're up in the sky, going down is the last thing you want to think about. If you're not equipped it can take weeks to find you, your passengers and your plane. That's where our selection of ACR beacons comes in. |
We also understand that flying gets expensive and every pilot has different requirements, so we've included a variety at different price points for you to choose from. When you purchase one of our emergency beacons, you can choose which qualities are most important to you, from battery life to durability to size, SkyGeek offers it all. Our distress radio beacons will give you the reassurance and peace of mind that you need when flying the friendly skies.
How will this save your life?
Most emergency beacons are activated by situations that include a crash or sinking ? but can also be manually activated by survivors. Satellites pick up the signal and you're on your way to being rescued! Not a bad thing to have around.
Hello? have you upgraded yet?
The Geek highly suggests that if you're still using a 121.5 or 243 MHz (Class B) radio beacon, then you should upgrade to 406 MHz. The FAA stopped monitoring the lower frequencies as far back at February of 2009.
