Q: How can I convert my David Clark H-7030 headset to be used in general aviation? The same is for my H-7010? Thanks and best regards
A: Per David Clark, I’m sorry but you cannot. This low impedance two way headset is not FAA TSO approved for general aviation use.
Q: Which adapter is needed for a David Clark H10-36 headset?
Q: I have a military DC H10-76XL, what do I need to use it in GA?
A: You would need the David Clark H10-76 Conversion Kit.
Q: I currently use the David Clark H10-26 for daily use. I would like to use these for GA fixed wing aircraft use as well. What is the correct adapter that is required for this?
A: Yes, this adapter will allow you to use your David Clark H10-26 in an airplane with the standard dual plugs. We also offer this helicopter to fixed wing adapter that will also work and save you some money.
Q: I have a David clark H10 - 13.4 headset and I was wondering if an adapter exists that can convert the plug into the 3.5mm stereo plug so I could use it to listen music from my phone
A: Sure, you can get the CD / MP3 Player Headset Adapter - Fixed Wing.
Q: I have a David Clark H10-66XL, and would like to find an "affordable" adaptor for my older fixed wing airplane. Suggestions?
A: Because the H10-66XL has a high/low impedance switch, you can simply use the Helicopter to Standard Fixed Wing Adapter.
Q: Hi, I have a DC H10-56HXL that I want to use in General Aviation, I tried a friend adapter and while the headseat was working felt that the noise cancelling was not, do I need a specific adapter for this headset? please let me know the options. Thanks!
A: Any standard helicopter to fixed wing adapter will work, like the David Clark Helicopter to Fixed Wing Adapter
Q: I have a David Clark H10 - 66XL with ENC/ANR technology. I would like to convert from helicopter to fixed wing. Can you recommend an adapter? I noticed that some of them say with or without impedance and I'm not understanding what that means. Thanks!
A: Yes, this adapter will work. However, your impedance switch on your headset will need to be set for civilian use (high impedance) or else the mic will not transmit.
Q: I have a David Clark H3442 military headset that I need to convert to civilian helicopter. What would that take? It is single plug, but the plugs aren't the same.
A: The David Clark H3442 isn't actually a military headset, but a vehicle intercom headset often used by ground support crews. The H3442 terminates with a PJ-051 male plug and would need to mate with a SC-838 female connector and then adapt to a U-174/U plug found in helicopters. This can be done with the David Clark 18253G-12 Cable Assembly. However, please note that doing this would result in a product that is no longer FAA TSO'd (if that matters for you). Also, because of the way the H3442 is wired in serial if you were ever to have a problem with one of the earphones, you would lose sound in both ears so it would not be a recommended solution for a pilot in command.
Q: I have the David Clarke H10-13 H headset. Do I need the David Clark fixed wing adapter? Or would I be able to use the standard fixed wing adapter to save some money?
A: Yes, the Helicopter to Standard Fixed Wing Adapter will work just fine!
Q: I have a David Clark railroad headset (40301G-03). I also have a David Clark adaptor for this headset(18667G-32). However, the jack on the headset will not fit into adaptor. Which conversion kit, if any, will work? Would a simple plug work as well? If so, which one?
A: Sorry, we are not aware of any method of converting a railroad headset for use in an airplane.
Q: I have a Bose A20 headset, for civilian helicopters. Can I use this David Clark helicopter to fixed wing adapter cord to convert my headset for airplane use?
A: Sure, this will convert the Bose A20 helicopter headset for use in fixed wing aircraft. You can also use our Helicopter to Standard Fixed Wing Adapter to do the same thing at a cheaper price.
Q: Hi, I was given a military headset from my stepfather. It is a DC H10-76 with a Nexus U-172/U cord coming from the earpiece to connected to another plug labeled U-173/U then plugged into Microphone Dynamic M-87/AIC Astrocom Electronics. I just want to make sure of the full adapters that I may need. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for you time in this matter.
A: In order to convert the David Clark H10-76 headset for use in a civilian fixed wing aircraft, we would suggest that you buy the H10-76 Conversion Kit. This will convert the single plug to dual plugs for fixed wing aircraft and it will also convert the dynamic microphone to an electret microphone.
Q: I have DC H10-60 with single plug for helicopter. Will the $88.25 adapter convert impedance. This would allow use of coiled cord or should I buy the straight cord and connect to dome on DC headset?
A: If you are converting to a civilian fixed wing aircraft, there is no need to convert impedance on the H10-60H headset that you have. You can use this adapter to convert the plugs from the single to the dual plugs (PJ-055 and PJ-068) if you don't mind using the coiled cord that you currently have. We also offer an aftermarket Helicopter to Standard Fixed Wing Adapter that does the same thing as this one. If you would like to convert to a straight cord, we offer the David Clark 5 Foot Straight Cord with PJ-055 / PJ-068 Plugs.
Q: I HAVE H10-66 MODEL. CAN I USE THE STANDARD FIXED WING ADAPTER PJ-068&PJ-055B (DOES NOT CONVERT IMPEDANCE)
A: You can use this adapter or the JB-08 Helicopter to Fixed Wing Adapter to convert your headset for use in civilian fixed-wing aircraft.
Q: I have a model H3530 headset (a ground support headset?). Is there an adapter available for fixed wing/general aviation so that I can use it in a Cessna 172?
A: We do not know of any way to convert a ground support headset to be used in the cockpit.
Q: I have a H10-20 headset is this the correct conversion to a general aviation dual plug?
A: The H10-20 is already setup with dual plugs to be used in a fixed wing headset. Are you sure you have the H10-20? There is a H10-26 which is the helicopter version of the H10-20. If that's what you have, this would be the correct adapter to use for conversion.
Q: I have a David Clark model H10-36 head set and would like to use it in fixed wing if possible. What adapters will work?
A: Yes, this adapter will allow you to use your helicopter headset (H10-36) in a fixed wing airplane.
Q: Will this work to convert a military headset to civilian?
A: It depends on the headset model. If it is a David Clark H10-76 you will need the David Clark H10-76 Conversion Kit.
Q: I have a H10-76 what adapter do I need to convert to general aviation?
A: you will need the 1142-22 Electret Mic found here: https://www.mypilotstore.com/mypilotstore/sep/2162 and the JB-08 adapter that is linked from that page.
Q: I have a DC H10-13H headset. Which is the right adapter to use the headset for general aviation?
A: This adapter is correct for conversion to general aviation. Alternately, you can also use product JB-08 which is also a Helicopter to Standard General Aviation adapter (https://www.mypilotstore.com/mypilotstore/sep/1251)
