El Dorado, Calif.-based Sequoia Helicopters has chosen the Becker Avionics airborne BD406 beacon decoder for its MD530F. The decoder will be used to improve search and rescue (SAR) operations for the El Dorado County Sherriff’s Department Aero Squadron, which uses the MD530F from Sequoia on a voluntary basis. The BD406 has the capability to track and identify up to 49 individual beacon codes, which the Aero Squadron believes will improve its real-time reception of beacon GPS positions during rescue missions.
