The AltAlert™ Warns Pilots When Cabin Pressure Is Compromised
“Even the best trained pilots and OEM-supplied warning systems have suffered a lapse in cabin altitude awareness. The AltAlert closes this gap and can save lives.”
AltAlert™ is the first and only mountable/wearable personal cabin pressure monitor. Ideal for use in all types of aircraft, this revolutionary device is every bit as invaluable as it is portable. AltAlert™ keeps pilots informed of “relative altitude” and can avoid incidents/accidents related to cabin pressure problems, such as slow cabin pressure leaks and potentially deadly slow onset hypoxia.
A Potentially Life-Saving Device For Pilots & Passengers!
AltAlert™ has been expertly developed by Aviation Technology™ to provide a new level of confidence and risk-mitigation for aircraft pilots and passengers alike.
Exclusively licensed from NASA under U.S. Patent 6,452,510, AltAlert™ will alarm when the cabin reaches an imminent and dangerously high cabin pressure-altitude (relative cabin pressure), based on FAA regulations. Once activated by installation of the battery (included), the unit will enter "sleep mode" while at ground level, but will begin sampling pressure and battery voltage every 15 seconds during climb and while in level flight (consistent flying altitude) at altitudes above sea level. AltAlert™ will operate as such until the battery is drained or removed (usually about 18 months, unless alarm is activated). The battery status can be tested at any time by pressing the “test” button.
Relative cabin pressure and battery status is indicated via a series of LED color changes and alarm tones. An included chart explains these indications (color, blink-rate, etc.) in greater detail.
AltAlert™ may be easily mounted on a flat surface in the cockpit or cabin of the aircraft, clipped to a visor, or worn where sound is not muffled by clothing.
"I read it in AIN Alerts. Thanks for making a product that might save mine and my passengers lives one day!" Mark Perich, Australia
"I got my AltAlert unit end of 2014. I installed it, which was very easy, and I have it in the plane since then. I fly with my Piper Meridian mostly at FL 270/FL280 and although the Meridian has an altitude warning system in the panel, I really like it that I a have a completely independent second altitude alert system in the cabin protecting me and my passengers. It’s there always, it switches itself on and the only thing I check before flight is the battery status. It is a very clever and simpel unit that’s monitoring the cabin altitude for you all the time. I can recommend it to every pilot flying pressurized. Even airline pilots can just have it in their pocket as a personal safety unit." Arthur J.L. Valkieser, Cannes, France
