Satair has signed a multi-year distribution agreement with aerospace manufacturer Dayton-Granger for the global distribution of Dayton-Granger’s ELT-DT Blade Antenna.

The antenna complies with the new EASA mandate requiring passenger jets to be equipped with emergency locator transmitters of a distress tracking type from 2024, designed with anti-disablement, lightning protection and Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) location features.

“We are excited to partner with Dayton-Granger and are confident that this new partnership will further support our commitment to providing customers with reliable, high-quality solutions for their Airbus fleet,” said Thomas Lagaillarde, Head of Product Management and Business Development, Satair.

The new partnership marks the first agreement between Satair and Dayton-Granger and will see the installation of the Dayton-Granger ELT Antenna on the majority of new Airbus commercial fixed-wing aircraft according to the EASA mandate, which applies to aircraft with a maximum take-off weight of over 27,000kg with an airworthiness certificate granted after 1 January 2024.

“We look forward to working with Satair and leveraging their global customer network and expertise in forecasting and fulfilling product support needs of aircraft operators worldwide, on a 24-hours-a-day and seven-days-a-week basis for AOG emergency orders,” added Kristin Cline, President, Dayton-Granger. “Dayton-Granger is committed and proud to provide our customers with the highest quality and reliable products for their existing and emerging requirements.”
