A transceiver radiois an ideal purchase for pilots requiring two way communications whilst operating an aircraft and an excellent backup to an aircraft’s primary radio. All our Transceivers are 8.33Khz compatible and you can choose from a basic 'Comms only' radio to units with Navigation and GPS functionality if required
The use of the Aeronautical radio spectrum in the main frequency bands is divided into two main functions – ground-air communications and radio navigation. The CAA (acting as agent to the Office of Communications) issues licences to cover these uses of radio.
Article 139 (2) of the Air Navigation Order (2016) exempts balloon/glider pilots operating on the nominated balloon/glider frequencies and persons being trained as flight crew in UK registered aircraft. However, balloon/glider pilots must contact air traffic control if they wish to enter controlled airspace for which they must hold the Flight Radiotelephony Operators Licence (FRTOL).
