Cessna Crash Test for Emergency Transmitters

A Cessna 172 dropped to the concrete from 82 feet (25 meters), to test the performance of four emergency locator transmitters (ELTs) installed on board.

Researchers are working to improve ELT aircraft installations, at NASA’s Landing and Impact Research Facility, Langley Research Center in Hampton, in Virginia, since studies show they don’t always work correctly.
