Aeronautical radio licensing covers aircraft radio licences, aeronautical ground station licences and navigation aids, including radar. The Civil Aviation Authority is the UK agency responsible for air safety and is also responsible for managing aeronautical radio assignments. The CAA distributes all aeronautical radio licences on behalf of Ofcom
If you use a radio system for your business then you will need a licence from Ofcom. Business radio users range from taxi companies and factories, to hospitals, care homes, industrial sites and transport operators. This section covers guidance for licensees.
