Frequency Assignment Practices

 

Business operating procedures

  2. Airservices Australia endorsement of frequency assignments to support applications for aeronautical or aircraft apparatus licences
  3. Procedure for submitting requests for exemptions from embargoes

Other information

Frequency assignments to the aeronautical mobile service must be endorsed by Airservices Australia before we issue a licence.

We only issue an aircraft licence to authorise the operation of aircraft aeronautical equipment on frequencies that are not authorised under the Radiocommunications (Aircraft and Aeronautical Mobile Stations) Class Licence 2006.
