(b) An aircraft station is licensed by
rule and does not need an individual
license issued by the FCC if the
aircraft station is not required by
statute, treaty, or agreement to which
the United States is signatory to
carry a radio, and the aircraft station
does not make international flights
or communications. Even though an
individual license is not required,
an aircraft station licensed by rule
must be operated in accordance
with all applicable operating
requirements, procedures, and technical
specifications found in this part.
You need a commercial operator license to
repair and maintain all aircraft stations and
aeronautical ground stations (including handcarried portable units) used to communicate
with aircraft. A General Radiotelephone
Operator License is required to adjust,
maintain, or internally repair FCC licensed
radiotelephone transmitters in the aviation,
maritime, and international fixed public radio
services. It is also required to operate any
aeronautical (including aircraft) stations with
more than 1,000 watts of peak envelope power.
