STC for ELT Installations

A Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) is a document issued by the Federal Aviation Administration approving a product (aircraft, engine, or propeller) modification. The STC defines the product design change, states how the modification affects the existing type design, and lists serial number effectivity. It also identifies the certification basis listing specific regulatory compliance for the design change. Information contained in the certification basis is helpful for those applicants proposing subsequent product modifications and evaluating certification basis compatibility with other STC modifications.


ARTEX does not hold any STC's for any ELT installation or aircraft type. Artex recommends contacting the aircraft manufacturer for information regarding STC's.


FAA STC's and EASA STC's to install ARTEX 406 MHz ELTs into aircraft are also available through EMTEQ and EAD Aerospace. Please select one of the links below for more information:
