Icom is offering an excellent opportunity for pilots to meet the 8.33 radio deadline and save money with its new airband radio scrappage scheme, which runs until the end of 2017.

The scheme will provide customers with a £50 rebate against a purchase of either an IC-A6E Portable VHF COM Transceiver or IC-A24E Portable VHF VOR/COM Transceiver (Sport or PRO Pack), or £75 rebate against a purchase of an IC-A220T Airband Panel Mount Transceiver.

This is how it works: make a purchase of IC-A6E, IC-A24E or IC-A220T from an authorised Icom Aviation Dealer (UK, Republic of Ireland, and Isle of Man & Channel Islands only). After you have made your purchase, print out and complete the form, downloadable by clicking here. Attach a copy of your receipt and then send the paperwork and your old airband transceiver to Icom at the address given on the promotion web page.

‘It doesn’t have to be an Icom and doesn’t have to work,’ says Icom – and if you are turning in an older IC-A6E or IC-A24E, you can keep the battery.

On receipt of the scrap radio and paperwork Icon will arrange to send either a cheque or make a cash transfer for the stated amounts. The offer is only available for radios purchased between 13 November and 31 January 2017.
