NASA Conducts Crash Test on Cessna to Assess ELT Performance

NASA has recently conducted a crash test using a Cessna 172 plane at NASA’s Langley Research Center, Hampton, Virginia.

The test was carried out to evaluate the performance of Emergency Locator Transmitters (ELT) in the aircraft. The aircraft was hauled to 82 feet to assess how the 4 ELTs installed in the plane perform during cabling’s strength and fire tests and beacons’ drop and vibration tests

NASA spokesperson Chad Stimson said “Everything worked. But the team will take some time to sort out why the ELTs performed the way they did.”
