MAP083/MAP086 – 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 To comply with the above, the modification allows the replacement of outdated Rockwell Collins / KING KTR radio transceivers (2 per aircraft) with Rockwell Collins VHF-422C transceivers.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.

The modification includes (customer documents):

  • Mechanical installation drawings
  • Mechanical manufacturing drawings (for brackets required)
  • Wiring diagrams
  • Engineering orders
  • Instruction for Continued Airworthiness
  • Flight Manual Supplement
