Due to the mutual recognition system between the FAA and EASA, TSO approved products can be sold as ETSO product in European Union member states.
The long awaited successor to the celebrated IC-A210 has the capability to work on both 8.33 kHz and 25 kHz channel spacing frequencies. It features a slim stylish design, a bright white display, enhanced squelch control and easy installation for pilots.
TSO is a performance standard for specified materials, parts and devices used on civil aircrafts, issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The IC-A220T radio is TSO certified for a Class 23 (CS-23A) fixed wing aircraft - Normal Category airplane 1494 registered in the UK as of 1st Jan 2016.
Supplied with D sub connector fitted & MBA3 adaptor for additional functionality.
The MBA3 allows A220 to fit into panel mount previously occupiedby King KY96A, KY97A, KY196A, KY197A.
(Please note: MBA-3 Adapter is supplied unfitted)
The A220T comes with a sliding tray with a 25pin D connector in the back of it, if you already have a radio that fits into that same tray but with the card edge connector (as previously used on the Icom A200 and some of the King/Garmin products) you'll need to fit the MBA3 to the radio and that adapts it to that card edge style connector, the radio should then just plug straight into the existing tray.
This radio features a slim stylish design, a bright white display, enhanced squelch control and easy installation for pilots.
White OLED Display and White Key Backlight
Operating information is clearly shown on the OLED display. The IC-A220T has a bright organic light emitting diode (OLED) display with a very wide 170 degree viewing angle. White characters on a black background clearly show easy to read operating information. With white key backlighting, the white OLED display matches in with a modern plane's instrument panel. In addition, the auto dimmer function adjusts the display for optimum brightness, day or night.
8.33 kHz Channel Spacing
The IC-A220T allows switching between 8.33 kHz and 25 kHz frequency steps in the menu mode.
Easy Channel Selection
Selecting any of the memory channels in the IC-A220T is really easy. The flip-flop arrow button switches between main and stand-by channels. The dualwatch function allows you to monitor two channels simultaneously. In addition, the auto stack memory stores the last 20 channels used and allows you to recall those channels easily.
Automatic Squelch Function
The new automatic squelch function detects the signal level and automatically adjusts the squelch level to maintain a received call. The manual squelch function allows you to instantly adjust the squelch level. The squelch test function manually opens the squelch for testing.
The IC-A220T has a built-in voice activated intercom function allowing the pilot to talk with the co-pilot via the headset. The IC-A220T has adjustable audio level and squelch control functions.
GPS Memory Function
When connected to an external GPS receiver equipped with an airport frequency database, the frequency data such as nearby airports can be transferred and made available in the IC-A220T.
