Yaesu FTA-550L NAV/COM Aviation Transceiver - U.S. 110 Volt

Product Description

This unit is for 110 Volt U.S. Power sources.

The YAESU FTA-550L Pro-X is an Airband Transceiver with ILS (Localizer Only) and VOR Navigation!

The YAESU FTA-550 is packed with features, yet very affordable. Boasting an oversize full dot matrix LCD display, the FTA-550 Airband Transceiver provides full communication on the Aircraft communications Band and additionally provides VOR and ILS navigation features on the "NAV" band.

The FTA-550 includes NOAA weather band monitoring and the capability of programming up to 200 memory channels with a quick and easy channel recall feature. The brand new easy to operate menu system is icon driven making it simple to navigate through all of the powerful features this transceiver has to offer.

Additionally the FTA-550 can easily be reprogrammed in minutes using the optional PC Programming software and the supplied USB programming cable.

The difference between the FTA-550L and the FTA-550 AA:

  • The FTA-550L comes with a Lithium-Ion Rechargeable battery and an Alkaline Battery Tray.
  • The FTA-550 AA only comes with the Alkaline Battery Tray (it does not include a Rechargeable Battery although you can buy one later if you like).


Easy to Operate Menu system
The FTA-550 comes configured with an easy to operate icon driven menu system. The displays and menu settings are logically configured for a more intuitive user interface.

Huge Dot Matrix Display (160 x 160 dots)
The FTA-550 features a huge 1.7" x 1.7" full dot matric LCD display with full backlight and dimmer. The high resolution display makes it easier to view all the great features the FTA-550 has to offer.

VOR Navigation Display
When the FTA-550 receives a VOR signal, the display will automatically switch to the NAV band screen which shows a CDI based on the received signal.

200 Memory channels with up to 15 Alphanumeric characters
The FTA-550 can store up to 200 Memory channels for quick and easy retrieval. With the capability of using up to 15 Alphanumeric characters per name the FTA-550 allows for a better channel description.

Occupation / Rating:
  • Easy to use. great menus. very clear audio. couldn't be happier
  • Pros: clear audio
  • Cons: none
Occupation / Rating:
IFR, twin engine
handling is not for cockpit operation
  • Operation is medieval, far from state of the art.
    A nagging reminder "you assume total responsability and risk..." has to be confirmed at each power on.
    Current operations are buried in menus. E.g., accessing a stored frequency in memory is a multistep process, modifying it needs stepping through menu/setup (!!!)/memory book/...
    PC-Software for the USB must be ordered separately.
    The list of odd handling sequences is long.
    Keys are too small compared with competitors.

    All in all a nice radio to play with on your office desk, but not for your cockpit.
  • Pros: hardware is rugged, COM reception is good,NAV reception regular
  • Cons: Operation too clumsy in particular memory access too involved,keys too small, nagging warning,USB port but no PC-SW included
Headset ptt
  • All of us want to connect this Pro X radio to a headset with PTT switch. The PTT adapter should be listed alongside the radio so we can purchase together. Yaesu not listening to the needs of pilots.
Nice, but lacking.
  • I purchased this radio because I liked the large screen. The programming is a little convoluted, but doable. The one problem I have with it is that there doesn't seem to be a way to connect to a remote, joystick mounted, PTT switch. I've sent emails to Yaesu, but they haven't responded. MarvGolden Note: There is a little bar at the top side of the radio that has two screws in it. That is where you can connect a headset adapter. You can put any standard PTT switch in-line with the adapter.
an excelent radio , but.....
  • the radio and all the equipment in the box are excelent.
