Emergency Locator Transmitter

Registry Publication 13 provides information on the coding and registration of an Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) or Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) installed/carried on aircraft registered in the Isle of Man.

ICAO requires each ELT/PLB to be uniquely coded and registered. The owner/operator of an aircraft registered in the Isle of Man is responsible for registering, or re-registering, ELT/PLBs on their aircraft with the UK Distress & Security Beacon Registry who are the Isle of Man and UK point of contact for ELT/PLB registrations.

Registration is accomplished by completing the Isle of Man Aircraft Registry's Form 37, and sending the completed form by e-mail (please copy in [email protected]), fax or post to UK Distress & Security Beacon Registry at the address shown below:
