I've been a VFR, Single Engine Land pleasure pilot for several years now and am looking into converting from using a hand microphone to headsets. I tend to rent from a variety of clubs and fly many different kinds of planes (all single engine).

I am wondering, how important it would be to purchase a portable push to talk switch. Are their alot of aircraft out there that requires these or are most have them built into the yoke.

I know this is a little bit of an ignorant question, but I've never taken the time to stop and look on each flight.

Basically, is it really worth it to purchase one?

Wrong forum, you should've posted this in the Tech Ops forum.

I think most aircraft come with the push to talk switches built into the yoke. I was on a double engine turbo-prop. I checked out the cockpit, and the pilot pushed a switch on the yoke when he talked.
