Safetycom extension granted by CAA

Safetycom extension granted by CAA

Tuesday 21st November 2017

The change to 8:33 kHz spacing is being realised throughout Europe. Many private grass airstrips rely on Safetycom for  air to air communication, plus handheld to aircraft communications. The Safetycom frequency of 135.475 has been granted an exemption by the CAA until the end of 2018.

So you don’t have to discard that old style handheld kept on your farm strip just yet! 

The ability to use for the 121.5 Emergency frequency remains available indefinitely
