Icom Announces A220 Air Band Panel Mount Transceiver Now TSO Approved


KIRKLAND, Wash. (July 2016) – In addition to the A220 platform, Icom America announces a Technical Standard Order (TSO) certified A220 VHF air band radio. This radio for the avionics market features enhanced squelch control, a bright white display and easy installation. Information regarding this radio may be obtained from an Authorized Icom Dealer and online.

TSO is a performance standard for specified materials, parts and devices used on civil aircrafts, issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). TSO approved equipment is deemed safe and beneficial, and is allotted to set standards for equipment installed in aircrafts. Icom’s A220 radio is TSO certified for a part 23 aircraft, a general aviation aircraft (single, light twins and some turboprop crafts) with a maximum take-off weight of less than 12,500 pounds. Additional information regarding part 23 aircrafts is available on the FAA's website.

Icom's A220 air band radio has a large, bright organic light emitting diode (OLED) display with white key backlighting. An auto-dimmer function adjusts the OLED's brightness for ideal daytime or nighttime operation. The A220 also features one-action squelch operation and automatic/manual squelch control. Additionally, the A220 features an available D-SUB 25 connector in its back panel. This industry standard connection promotes flexible and easy installation.

Interested parties are encouraged to visit the Icom A220 product page for complete radio features.

Information regarding the A220's availability and retail pricing will be available soon from an Authorized Icom Dealer.
