Technical description FTA-250L

The FTA-250L allows listening and speaking in AM on the aeronautical band in a rugged polycarbonate enclosure of only 52 x 105 x 30 mm and 300 g, with manufacturing and rigorous testing according to MIL-STD-810F. Ideal for pure COM functions such as retrievers, escorts, but also for ULs that already have NAV functions.
A USB programming cable is included in the scope of delivery. Together with the YCE01 software, which is available free of charge, memory management is greatly facilitated and allows setups to be changed quickly.
The powerful battery with 7.4 V and 1950 mAh can be charged in many ways: Either on the road in the car with the included cigarette lighter adapter cable, or in the hotel with the included charger. Of course, a charging cradle is also included so that the FTA-250L always finds its permanent place in the office and remains in readiness. So you always have enough energy with you, no matter where your journey takes you to.

Application description FTA-250L

The FTA-250L aircraft radio is the ideal companion for pilots and air sports enthusiasts. With this handheld radio, voice radio in the aeronautical band with 5 W transmitting power is possible. To make operation as easy as possible, up to 250 memory channels can be freely programmed. This makes it easy to find all important frequencies. The robust keypad allows quick frequency selection.
The FTA-250L also offers many features that make daily operation much easier in practice. For example, the large display and keypad are illuminated and dimmable to be easily readable at night without dazzling. The loudspeaker output is powerful enough to be easily heard even in noisy environments.
Other comprehensive accessories are included to make the FTA-250L aircraft radio easy to use in all conceivable situations and to provide safety in all situations – both in terms of power supply and the connection options to a wired avionics headset.

Approval for aeronautical radios since Sept. 6, 2017.

09/06/2017: FTA-250L / FTA-450L / FTA-550L / FTA-750L / FTA-850L now approved for non-air traffic control services!

The BNetzA (Federal Network Agency = German federal authority) now grants frequency allocations for FTA-250L/FTA-450/FTA-550/FTA-750, for ground radio stations and for radio equipment in aircraft!


  • the equipment is not used to provide air traffic control services (TURM/TOWER)
  • the frequency assignment must be associated with a D-xxxx callsign
  • the equipment must comply with the aviation standard ETSI EN 300676 (this is the case for FTA-250L/FTA-450L/FTA-550L/FTA-750L/FTA-850L)

Further restrictions may exist in individual cases, for example handheld radios in the aircraft do not replace the possibly required fixed mandatory equipment.

Further information can be obtained from the following associations: www.dulv.de, www.daec.de or from the Federal Network Agency.

Independently, of course, the following still applies, even if no frequency allocation is applied for:

Yaesu FTA-250L, FTA-450L, FTA-550L, FTA-750L and FTA-850L aircraft radios are CE certified, have a declaration of conformity and are notified to the Federal Network Agency. Trade, storage and purchase are therefore unproblematic.

The devices may not be operated in Germany without frequency assignment. According to the German Federal Aviation Authority, there is no objection to carrying devices without frequency assignment in a switched-off state in order to have a replacement device available in the event of a radio failure. Even operation in such a case will remain unsanctioned, since in an emergency the pilot must take all available measures to avert danger to himself and others.

As far as we know, in some other countries of the EU the operation of the equipment is allowed even without frequency assignment. 

(in UK: CAA Equipment Approval LA301075 for handheld 8.33 kHz channel spaced VHF radios, not valid for airspace A, B and C).

The Yaesu brand is well known among ham radio aficionados and is synonymous with premium quality ham radios. Yaesu also delivers this quality for airband communications, which is vital in ensuring flight safety and is used to exchange information between a pilot and control tower, a pilot and ground mechanic or between two pilots. Yaesu developed an ultra small 5W output portable transceiver, a technological breakthrough that achieved a miniaturization unlike any other competing product. The product was continuously developed and improved – one of the current results is the FTA-250L.
