LinAire Test Panels

The LinAire LA-6 Light Com/NAV Test Panel is engineered to handle the popular lightweight panel mounted avionics systems that are on the market today and adaptable to future models. The unit is a low profile (7 inches high) improved version of our dependable old LA-5 that has served the aviation community since 1966.

A Headphone amplifier has been added to eliminate the need for headphones when checking headphone or sidetone audio. This is a selectable function, either amplified to the panel speaker or normal phones operation selected by toggle switch. The panel has a improved microphone test circuit for checking pilot microphones. The voltage and current is monitored by 4 inch analog meters.

The panel comes enclosed in its own cabinet back and allows for standard rack mounting or stand alone use.
