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 ADS-B receiver meets the recommendation and provides a simple solution to protecting you and your passengers from this invisible danger with a built-in carbon monoxide sensor. When using Sentry in conjunction with the ForeFlight app, an audio alert is delivered through compatible headsets, and an alert message is displayed on the screen. In addition, the middle LED indicator on Sentry also provides a visual indication when CO levels in the cabin are dangerously high.
The portable and affordable Sentry device also delivers additional safety benefits such as ADS-B weather and traffic and WAAS GPS making it the most advanced ADS-B & GPS receiver in the industry.
