Apply for an Aircraft Station Licence call sign


For communication and navigation, aircraft and balloons use the frequencies of aeronautical and air navigation radio. The Federal Network Agency manages the corresponding frequency ranges. If you want to participate in aeronautical and air navigation radio, you need a call sign for the aeronautical station of your aircraft.

The callsign will be issued to you upon application in the form of an Aircraft Station License by the Federal Network Agency.

You must submit an application when you become the owner of an aircraft with an aeronautical station. An aircraft is, for example, an airplane or a balloon.

If you already have an Aircraft Station License and the following changes occur, you must submit a change application:

  • Changes to the aircraft's radio equipment
  • Changes to your name
  • Changes to your mailing address
  • Changes to your domestic receiving agent
  • You become the owner of an aircraft.
  • You are the owner of an aircraft and your name, address for service has changed or you have made changes to the radio equipment.
  • The domestic receiving agent or agents has changed.

During the application process, you may be required to provide evidence that your radio equipment is approved, or that the radio equipment meets certain technical standards.

The amount of the fees is calculated according to the special fee ordinance of the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA - BNetzAB-GebV) as amended.

If you have received a frequency allocation for the protection of interference-free frequency use, you must pay annual contributions in addition to the one-time allocation fee. The amount of these contributions is determined, among other things, by the Frequency Protection Contribution Ordinance (FSBei-trV), as amended.

There are no deadlines for you.

Existing allocations of call signs issued under the previous frequency allocations for aircraft stations and mobile air navigation radio stations (frequency allocation certificates) remain valid.
