The A16 is the ideal flight companion for pilots. This radio practically pays for itself by saving pilots both engine hours and fuel during preflight communications with the tower. Users appreciate the A16's compact, waterproof design for one hand operation for working on the flight line, using it for back up in any aircraft, or for use by ground crew. Its 2400mAh Li-ion battery lasts over 17 hours and the radio includes a nice sit in rapid charger.

In line with the Icom brand, the A16 Series is designed to operate in the harshest of environments. It's compact, boasting a waterproof design (IP67/IP54) and built to MIL-STD-810 (C, D, E, F, G) for the best durability.

Loud Audio
Air band radios are usually operated in high noise environments, so it is essential for the pilot’s radio to provide loud audio. The A16 internal speaker delivers a loud 1500mW audio output with clear sound to cut through cabin or tarmac noise.

IC-A16 versus Icom IC-A14
The IC-A16 is the direct replacement to the very popular Icom IC-A14 and IC-A14S transceivers.  The IC-A16 is very similiar in size and design to the IC-A14 but introduces a number of enhancements including; IP67 Waterproof rating, Larger capacity battery (2400 mAh vs 2000 mAh), 8.33kHz and 25kHz channel spacing (versus 25 kHz only in the A14), 1500mW loud audio (vs 700 mW on IC-A14), and 20% great output power (6 watts versus 5 watts).  The Icom IC-A16B also adds Bluetooth which was not available in the IC-A14.

All you need in a small package.

  • By Tom from Norwood,MA on Sunday, April 16, 2023
  • Pros: Battery lasts forever. I keep light function on while operating without worries. Squelch and volume function easy to find. Intuitive to use. This radio is loud. Probably no need for a headset adapter in the cockpit with this one. Great receiver.
  • Review: Wanted a handheld to pick up ATIS and potentially departure clearance before start up. Also good to have in case of comm failure. It's compact to carry and keep ground control up while working dispatch on the ramp. Does what it's supposed to and the size is perfect. It will be replacing my much loved IC-A23 . The IC-A16 is a noticeably better receiver. Able to pick up Boston Center as well as all corresponding traffic over a large area from my home.

  • Cons: Display is small but still readable and does the job. Close proximity to certain indoor lights and electronics may require high squelch adjustment. Not a problem when working at airport though.
