The Aero Mini M equipment consists of an antenna, transmission device, and handset, and weighs about 6 kg in total.
The light weight has made it possible to mount it on small aircraft and helicopters.
It may not be possible to fit the antenna on some small aircraft and helicopters due to limitations imposed by their airframe types. Also, the placement of the antenna may cause spots that could cause communication to fail.
