Installation of Automatic Deployable Emergency Locator Transmitter (AD-ELT) on Airbus helicopter EC 135 in cooperation with Intercopter

SPAES GmbH & Co. KG in collaboration with Intercopter, installed a HR-Smith Automatic Deployable Emergency Locator Transmitter System (AD-ELT) on Airbus Helicopters EC 135. SPAES received the STC approval from EASA. The STC was carried out in cooperation with our customer Intercopter, which operates many of its helicopters over water.

“If necessary the AD-ELT can be released by a switch in the cockpit or separated from the lower fuselage of the helicopter on contact with water. After the transmitter unit is disconnected from the helicopter, the transmitter sends its last stored position via radio to the rescue control station”, explained Joachim Schanz, CEO SPAES. The EASA STC is valid for Airbus helicopters EC 135 up to T3 and contains important certification documents for the customer.
