Gulf Coast Avionics adds to inventory

Gulf Coast Avionics Corp. has added two new product offerings to its inventory: Emergency Locator Transmitters from Ameri-King and the iFly720 GPS.

The AK-451 series of high performance Emergency Locator Transmitters from Ameri-King is an FAA TSO approved line of ELTs that bring new performance standards to the search and rescue function with new features such as triple frequency transmission (Satellite/Military/Civilian) which establishes exact aircraft location by GPS/Nav Latitude/Longitude within one minute of activation; transmission and reception that is not dependent on Polar Orbiting Satellite (which could take up to four hours) but sends exact position on the very first burst; and the assurance of distress signals reaching NOAA Satellite Operation and US Air Force Search and Rescue Operations with full reliability, according to Rick Garcia, president. The enhanced response time and GPS/Nav accuracy narrows site location for ground search teams to as little as 22 meters.

The second product added to the Gulf Coast Avionics inventory is the new iFly 720 dedicated aviation GPS. This new GPS features superior reception, sunlight readability, and numerous other outstanding features at a fraction of the cost of competing systems, Garcia said. Data updates for the iFly 720 are affordable, easily obtainable, and fast and easy to upload through connection to a Wi-Fi hotspot, he added, noting iFly 720 operators can even create preferences for quick, automatic updates.

“This is truly a runway-to-the-highway system,” he said. “The ‘iFly Streets’ function is a realistic road navigation system which provides voice-guided directions along with 3D visuals including lane guidance, street signs, buildings, and landmarks. In addition, a unique ‘Find a Place’ feature provides details on hotels, restaurants, and gas stations.”
