Drop cords or ICS cords are key to a successful operation. Whether they are used in a bird dog operation, emergency rescue, air ambulance or flying tourists drop cords play a crucial part.

At Skye Avionics we took our experience with helicopter operators, and the knowledge that we have gained over the last 20 years to design superior drop cords. We have designed a drop cord that is able to last the abuse that they are given, and keep on working. The drop cords that we have designed are ergonomic. Can be easily operated by either hand, contain a volume control, and have switches strategically placed for easy operation. The switches are long-life switches. The PTT switch is rated for 1,000,000 mechanical and electrical cycles. The volume control is a sealed container and panel sealed to IP67 specifications. It is rated for 50,000 cycles, 50 g’s in 3 successive shocks in 3 directions.
