Overview

A portable push-to-talk switch (PTT) for use with any general aviation headset, intercom, and radio. Features a lifetime warranty! Weight .90lbs

Good communications are essential to a successful flight. This convenient switch mounts to the yoke with a velcro strap, allowing pilots to use their thumb to push the button and communicate with ATC, Unicom, or other aircraft. This eliminates the distraction of picking up the microphone, for hands-free communications that keeps pilots focused on flying the aircraft. Particularly useful for rental aircraft, which typically might not have push-to-talk switches installed.

Features include:

  • Low-profile ergonomic button
  • Superior contact switch
  • Heavy-duty gold-plated plugs and jack
  • Durable, shield coiled cord
  • Hook and loop mounting strap
  • Plugs into aircraft radio or intercom
  • Molded strain relief
  • Lifetime warranty!

Although I dont like a PTT strapped to the yoke this one seems to stay put and is easy to use. Otherwise it does the job as it is intended to so Im satisfied with it.

I bought one of these to replace an identical switch with the common issue of a loose connection on the plug (I wish I would have read the other reviews before I ordered it!). Same issue as the one I intended to replace. I ended up replacing both of my switches with a different brand. Dont waste your money on this switch.

as with the other reviews, the connection is very loose fitting causing static, very annoying, probably cut off and hard wire. would not recommend this product.

The female jack is of poor quality. The mic jack from the headset plugging into it is loose and causes static or it to not work at all. Returned it to ASA for warranty replacement. Which they did, but the second one is just as bad. They have a real quality problem as it seems many others have seen the same problem. Too bad, I like the low profile switch.

Functions exactly as promised - I tried a lesser-priced PTT from another vendor, albeit one that cost 1/2 as much, but it did not work with stereo headsets properly with my digital panel. This switch works well with all my headsets plugged into a PMA450 intercom. The switch itself is lower-profile, and thus less conspicuous on the yoke. Good strap for placement that stays put. So -- purchase this knowing it will work. Did for me.

I bought this headset jack and installed it in my plane. Our jacks are hard-wired to the console so I cut the jack wire and wired it in. Seems to work great and I have had zero problems with it.

I should have read the reviews first, because I am having the exact same problem as some other people- the female headset jack is too loose so I am getting alot of static. It was driving me crazy until I figured out it was this switch. I had to hold the plug in just a certain way to make the static go away.

Worked for a month. Connection to Bose headset at the interface became sloppy and communications are now sporadically engaged...

I had some Mic Comm issues and needed a standby PTT to make things work and avoid Class C space. Didnt have one but I do now. Cheap, SMART Ins!!!

Q&A

Q: Will this PTT switch allow the mic to pass through to a panel mounted intercom? I have a different push to talk switch, but the mic is disabled unless the button is pressed.

This is all base on the wire diagram on your intercom. We recommend this PTT with use of a portable intercom as you will see these type of PTT used in the portable intercom diagram. For panel mount intercoms we recommend stick/yoke mount PTT.

Q: What size plug does the ASA Push to Talk switch work with?

This switch is intended for use with standard general aviation size dual plugs. Should be standard .206" microphone plug.
