Identical to the standard PA17-79T but with detachable Helicopter comm’s cable with single NATO U-174/U plug
PILOT’s top-of-the-line helicopter headset with ANR performance designed for the quality conscious consumer. The PA-1779HT takes full advantage of closer tolerance military components providing an additional 18-22dB of active noise cancellation at 100 Hz. The headset is the only self-contained ANR in the industry with a rechargeable nickel metal hydride (NiMH) battery with wall charger.
Because the PA17-79 has an integrated on-board, rechargeable battery pack, there are no fussy extra leads or in-line battery packs to get tangled
The PA-1779HT Aviation Headset comes equipped with PILOT"s new Auto On/Auto Shut-off proprietary circuitry. The ANR will shut-off automatically when the unit is unplugged from the aircraft or the master switch is turned off. This will conserve your battery’s charge enabling longer use between charges. The headset will automatically turn on when it is plugged in and the radio is turned on. There is a manual override On/Off switch on the headset in case you require the ANR to function when the unit is not plugged into the aircraft.
Communications cable is detachable allowing the headset to be worn as a hearing protector, around high noise machinery. This also means the one headset can also be used in fixed wing aircraft simply by plugging the appropriate GA comm’s cable. No other headset offers such versatility.
For added comfort, the headset is fitted with a sheepskin fleece head pad and PILOT's proprietary twin-layer “Double Bubble” silicone gel ear seals (30% less weight than normal gel ear seals.)
The headset is equipped to be cell/satellite phone capable.
A custom padded protective case is included with your headset.
