Aviation Radios

Whether you are in the air or on the ground, Icom keeps you in communications. Our most popular radios ever are here! From the large LCD display, the “Flip-Flop” function that allows you to access the last 10 frequencies that you used, to our exclusive “tag” scanning. It’s easy to see why pilots choose ICOM for their handheld needs. When you need it in an emergency, why take a chance on anything else?

Airband or Aircraft band is the name for a group of frequencies in the VHF radio spectrum allocated to radio communication in civil aviation, sometimes also referred to as VHF, or phonetically as "Victor". Different sections of the band are used for radio navigational aids and air traffic control.In most countries a license to operate airband equipment is required and the operator is tested on competency in procedures, language and the use of the phonetic alphabet.The VHF airband uses the frequencies between 108 and 137 MHz. The lowest 10 MHz of the band, from 108–117.95 MHz, is split into 200 narrow-band channels of 50 kHz. These are reserved for navigational aids such as VOR beacons, and precision approach systems such as ILS localizers.
