RAF - VFR Low Level Frequency

RAF - VFR Low Level Frequency

As part of the continual drive to mitigate the risk of mid-air collision, particularly at low-level, a trial has been initiated in Scotland, in conjunction with the Civil Aviation Authority, of a VHF Low-Level Common frequency that will allow military pilots and civilian General Aviation pilots to talk to each other when they suspect they might be operating in the same bit of low level airspace.

‘VHF Low Level Common’ has actually been on trial since 1 February 2015. It was meant to conclude on 1 October 2015, but has been extended to 31 August 2016. It is an information service on the VHF Frequency 135.475 MHz aiming to improve the situational awareness amongst, and to aid deconfliction between, aircraft operating in the same area. It is available for use by all pilots operating at or below 2000’ above ground level in Scotland north of a latitude of N56·00°.

Of course, any trial needs feedback, so if you have any views on the value of this frequency or, if you have had the opportunity to use it, please take a few minutes to complete the survey.
