Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) Information

If your ELT information has changed or if you are purchasing, selling, buying or disposing of an aircraft with a 406 MHz ELT, now is the time to ensure your ELT registration information is up to date and correct at: https://beaconregistration.noaa.gov/RGDB/

Keeping your ELT information up to date is not only required, it could save your life and or the lives of your family and friends.  When an ELT is activated, the registration data is automatically forwarded to the Rescue Coordination Centers providing critical data to aid search and rescue efforts, reducing unnecessary risk to the search and rescue response, and helping to reduce false alerts.  Additionally, aircraft owners must update their information upon transfer of an ELT to another aircraft owner, or upon any other change in registration information.

Registering or updating your 406 MHz ELT is free, easy, and required.        NOTE: The SARSAT system no longer monitors 121.5 Mhz.
