Works well

  • By Lindsay from Flagstaff AZ USA on Monday, October 02, 2017
  • Pros:
  • Review: Product works well. Seems sturdy and well made. Have only used it twice in a Cessna 172 with my David Clark heli headset but radio comes in clear and loud.

Works for my Bose A20 in a Diamond DA40

  • By Tom Preston-Werner from San Francisco CA USA on Tuesday, May 23, 2017
  • Pros: Cheap solution to the problem
  • Review: I use a Bose A20 when I fly helicopters (Robinson R22, R44). Recently I've started taking fixed wing lessons and figured it would be cheaper to buy an adapter than to fork over another $1100 on an essentially identical headset. I wasn't sure if it'd work with the Diamond DA40, but it's been working perfectly! Very happy with this purchase.

Works & the price is right!

  • By Brian S from Greenville, SC on Friday, April 21, 2017
  • Pros: Works great, last long time!
  • Review: I replaced the speakers and mic of my David Clark's H10-76 with General avn (civil) impedance components for use in civil helicopters. Now flying fixed wing, so got this adapter for the headset. Works perfectly.

  • By Thomas from Lafayette LA USA on Tuesday, February 21, 2017
  • Pros:
  • Review: Works very well for a very reasonable price.

Work as advertised

  • By Michael from Cape Coral FL USA on Friday, February 17, 2017
  • Pros:
  • Review: Originally ordered the wrong adapter, so be sure to order what you need. In my case I needed a female adapter for a large single mail plug from my Bose X for Robinson Heli.

I would recommend this product.

  • By Peter from Taupo Waikato New Zealand on Tuesday, November 15, 2016
  • Pros:
  • Review: A good product & very reasonably priced.

High quality adapter

  • By Ben Toonen from Boven Leeuwen Netherlands on Thursday, September 15, 2016
  • Pros: Strong high quality
  • Review: This product exceeded my expectations. It is strong, you really need force to plug or unplug the adapter. This is a positive property. it won't accidentally unplug.
    Also the service of mypilot store is excellent. They did some extra effort to get the package to the Netherlands.

    The only downside is de customs of Holland. they charge me an extra 35 dollar to handle it.

    Q: Does this helicopter to fixed wing adapter work in a VXA -220 Pro portable radio it has a CT-96 headset cable , I also need to plug a PTT switch into it ?

    A: This adapter will convert a heli headset to a GA headset with dual plugs. The dual plugs can then plug into your radio's headset adapter. Unfortunately there is no port for a PTT switch. You would need to use the one on the radio.

  • Wednesday, December 09, 2015

    Q: Hello, I just purchased a used AHX-32-04. I did not realize that this headset was for a helicopter. Will this adapter work to convert to airplane use. Will use of this adapter affect headset performance? Thank you.

    A: Are you certain that it is the AXH-32-04?  Most of the used ones sold on eBay and marketed as a "Helicopter Model" turn out to be a military headset (they have the same plug).  If your headset really is a civilian helicopter model then this is the adapter that you need to convert to use in an airplane.  If you have the military model then you also need to convert impedance and can do so with this low to high impedance adapter.  The easiest way to identify the difference between the military and civilian model is to look at the microphone.  If it looks like a flat, round, pancake it is military.  You can see the differences in the picture below.

     Low versus High Impedance Aviation Microphone

  • Thursday, February 07, 2013

    Q: With this work with a AHX-32-02 unit and will it be Stereo?

    A: No, this adapter will not convert the Bose AHX-32-02 (308100-0170)  which is a military configuration.  In order to convert the Bose AHX-32-02 headset you will need to convert impedance and change from single to dual plugs.  This can be accomplished with our Low to High Impedance Adapter.

    Q: I have an sp4 helicopter helmet. I need to convert it to general aviation but I don't understand the impedance part. Will this work?

    A: Military aircraft are typically low impedance while civilian aircraft are high impedance. If you use a low impedance headset in a high impedance aircraft, the mic will not function correctly. If your helmet is low impendance you will most likely need to convert it to high impedance using a Low to High Impedance Adapter.

    A: We do not have the specs on the E-13, however if it is a low impedance headset you would need to get the Low to High Impedance Adapter instead.  If it is high impedance, then this adapter should do the trick.

  • Tuesday, March 01, 2011

    Q: I have a headset David Clark H10-36 and want to use them in a GA light sport airplane.Will this adapter work or do I need an impedance adapter?

    Q: I have an H-10-46 model will this work?

    A: Unfortunately, the H10-46 has been discontinued for more than 10 years so we no longer have much information about that headset.   As long as the H10-46 is a high impedance headset, this would work fine.  But, if it's low impedance, you would instead need the Low to High Impedance Adapter.

  • Monday, March 01, 2010

    Q: I am considering purchasing a used Lightspeed 30/3G but it is set up for helicopter use. Will this adapter work and will the mike need to be changed? Thanks, Stan.

  • Tuesday, February 23, 2010

    Q: I am looking into getting the Helicopter to Standard Fixed Wing Adapter for my Bose headset. Need to make sure it fits. Also what does "Does not convert impedance" mean?

    A:

    This will work for you if your Bose X has the single U174 plug for helicopters. When it says that it does not convert impedance, it means that if you have a military Low Impedance headset, this adapter will not convert it to High Impedance for use in General Aviation.

  • Friday, September 04, 2009

    Q: Hello, I have a David Clark headset (military) Model H10-76XL. I would like to use it in the civilian airplanes like cessnas and what not.. What adapter should I use? What is the deal with all this "impedence". Thank you. Joe

    A: You would need the David Clark Conversion Kit which includes an adapter to convert the U174 plug on the H10-76XL to dual plugs for fixed wing civilian use as well as an electret mic to swap out for the dynamic one on the 76. Military headsets are typically low impedance and will not work for general aviation which is why conversion is necessary.

  • Tuesday, May 12, 2009

    Q: Will this convert a David Clark H10-37 military headset to be able to be used in a civilian aircraft?

    A: You would need to use this JB-08 Helicopter to Fixed Wing Adapter, however you would also need to swap out the mic for an electret one. We offer both the adapter and the electret mic together in an H10-76 Conversion Kit.

  • Wednesday, September 17, 2008

    Q: I have a David Clark model H10-13H. Will this work with that model?

  • Thursday, December 28, 2006

    Q: I have a David Clark headset that was given to me, but it has connector plug with 4 contacts ( Mic & headset in one) Is the Helicopter to General aviation adapter the corret one to allow use of the headset in a general aviation aircraft. (my present headset has two separate plugs, 2 conductor, one slightly smaller than the other)

    A: Do you know the model number of the David Clark headset that you have? If it's a military headset it will have a single plug. Some can be adapter simply using this adapter and some will require a different microphone as well (i.e. the David Clark H10-76 will also require the 1142-22 microphone).
