MAP087 – Replacement of VHF radios with 8.33kHz capable radio systems

The Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No. 1079/2012 lays down requirements for voice channel spacing for the Single European Sky and obliges the operator to equip the fleet with a 8.33kHz spacing capable VHF communication radio system (applicable for IFR flights in several European countries). To comply with the above, the modification allows the replacement of outdated Rockwell Collins radio transceivers (2 per aircraft) with Rockwell Collins VHF-422C transceivers. The VHF radio Control Panels are replaced where required and the centre console modified where necessary.
