In relation to NE (New) parts, many OEMs change their prices and availability without any notice to dealers or the industry. Therefore, through the REQUEST or RFQ indication, we ask that customers contact us for the most accurate price and availability.

In relation to SV & OH parts, the used parts aftermarket in the aviation industry is not an infinite supply. It is a dynamic, constantly changing market that is significantly affected by and susceptible to highs and lows in supply and demand. Therefore, although we attempt to, at times, we are unable to predict the exact moment when an item may be available. Once again, through the REQUEST or RFQ indication on our website, we ask that customers contact us for the most current and accurate price and availability.

8.33 refers to the kilohertz (kHz) channel spacing for VHF communications radios required in certain types of airspace. Normal channel spacing for VHF comm radios is 25 kHz. Currently, 8.33 kHz channel spacing is only required above FL195 (19500 ft.) in the ICAO European region as of 15 March 2007.

8.33 channel spacing was introduced and implemented to help reduce VHF communication overlap and congestion in high traffic areas in Europe. With dividing 25 kHz by 3 (thus 8.33), many new communication frequencies were created. Only very specific radio equipment is capable of channeling, transmitting, and receiving in 8.33 kHz increments. Some of the more popular systems include the Rockwell Collins VHF-21/22/422/C/D and Bendix/King KX-165A (-0201), KY-196B. The Garmin GNS-430/530 series systems are capable of 8.33 also.
