ELT's and PLB's

Presented by Herb Patten

Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs) are becoming cheaper and more reliable. Why would a pilot need a PLB if they already have an onboard ELT? How would a PLB help a pilot in an emergency? What is a PLB anyway?

Note: FAA WINGS credit has been approved for this event! Pre-register now for credit on the FAASTeam events web site.
