Hi Guys,

I´m new in this paramotor thing. And after reading a lot there is one question about radios and communication in the air.

So ... what i think i like to do is to have a airband radio and I like to comminicate with other people in the air. Bluetooth intercom ...no ;-). Is there a portable device on the market the is good for both ?

If there would be any advice ... would be nice :-)

Hi, if you use an airband radio you have to have an operators license to use one. Usually a training flying clubs will run courses as part of pilots PPL training. The handheld airband radios are really aimed at people needed to talk to airtraffic control, airfields etc and not a "chat" radio.

I could be wrong and happy to be corrected but I don't think a lot of Paramotor pilots use an airband radio but do use other radios like PMR446 license free for group flying and training. I'm sure there are lots of posts on what radios people like.

thx for your reply nic ...

what i´m thinking about is, how can i manage this if let´s say, i like to make an overland flight with some friend and we make some stops at some little airport ... so that we can talk to each other and i can reach the info frequency from the airport ...

I have read that it is common in ul flights to commuicate to each other over some special blabla frequencys in the airband ....

No Problem, I do know in the UK some companies have there own licensed company frequencies. This would be for there own "operational chat".

I also know of pilots using 123.45 as a "chat" but this is a long time ago. To operate an Air band radio you still have to be licensed.
