The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) recently released a recommendation that the FAA require all enclosed-cabin aircraft with reciprocating engines to be equipped with a carbon monoxide (CO) detector. This decision came after reviewing several fatal accidents and determining their cause to be carbon monoxide poisoning.
You can read the entire report from the NTSB here.
ForeFlight’s Sentry Plus and Sentry ADS-B receivers meet the recommendation and provide a simple solution to protecting you and your passengers from this invisible danger with a built-in carbon monoxide sensor. When using a Sentry device in conjunction with the ForeFlight app, an audio alert is delivered through compatible headsets, and both Sentry Plus and Sentry provide a visual indication when CO levels in the cabin are dangerously high.
The portable and affordable Sentry devices also deliver additional safety benefits such as ADS-B weather and traffic and WAAS GPS making them the most advanced ADS-B & GPS receivers in the industry.
