Definition

Two-way communication between aircraft and stations or locations on the surface of the earth.

Source: ICAO Annex 10 - Aeronautical Communications

Voice Communications

Voice/audio communications between an aircraft and the ground are traditionally accomplished using radio telephony, broadcasting and receiving on:

  • UHF
  • VHF
  • HF

Alternatively voice communications can be conducted using SATCOM, including VOIP through the Internet.

For further information, see the separate article "Air-Ground Voice Communications"

Data Communications

Data can be passed between an aircraft and a ground station using:

Visual Communications

Communications can be accomplished visually using, for example, and Aldis[1] Lamp to flash messages between aircraft and ground stations in Morse Code or through standard conventions associated with emergency situations.
