Yaesu FTA-850L Airband 8.33kHz (COM/NAV/GPS/Bluetooth)


The YAESU FTA-850L is an Airband COM/NAV/GPS/Bluetooth radio with ILS / VOR Radio navigation, and GPS Flight route and Waypoint Navigation. It has a large color display and transmits with 6 watts of power which should give a longer range than other less powerful radios.

If you don’t need the Color display, Bluetooth or GPS, ILS or VOR functionality you can get the FTA-450L which is COM only.

Due to Component shortages, the European Distributor does not have stock. We expect to get devices in June. Please email us if you want to be notified when they arrive.
