FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, March 7, 2012, Lakeland, Florida – Rick Garcia, President of Gulf Coast Avionics Corporation, has announced the addition of two new product offerings from its extensive inventory. In making the announcement Garcia said, “We are constantly looking for additional products that contribute to pilot efficiency and safety of flight. The two products we announce today certainly fit in those categories.”
The first product is the most recent offering of high performance Emergency Locator Transmitters from Ameri-King. The AK-451 series is an FAA TSO approved line of ELTs that bring new performance standards to the search and rescue function with new features such as triple frequency transmission (Satellite/Military /Civilian) which establishes exact aircraft location by GPS/Nav Latitude/Longitude within one minute of activation; transmission and reception that is not dependent on Polar Orbiting Satellite (which could take up to four hours) but sends exact position on the very first burst; and the assurance of distress signals reaching NOAA Satellite Operation and US Air Force Search and Rescue Operations with full reliability. The enhanced response time and GPS/Nav accuracy narrows site location for ground search teams to as little as 22 meters.
The second product being added to the Gulf Coast Avionics inventory is the new and surprisingly affordable iFly 720 dedicated aviation GPS. This new iPad-based GPS features superior reception, sunlight readability, and numerous other outstanding features at a fraction of the cost of competing systems. Data updates for the iFly 720 are affordable, easily obtainable, and fast and easy to upload through connection to a Wi-Fi hotspot. iFly 720 operators can even create preferences for quick, automatic updates.
Commenting on this new product, Garcia said, “This is truly a runway-to-the- highway system. The ‘iFly Streets’ function is a realistic road navigation system which provides voice-guided directions along with 3D visuals including lane guidance, street signs, buildings, and landmarks. In addition, a unique ‘Find a Place’ feature provides details on hotels, restaurants, and gas stations."
