Now with enhanced scanning and reception

Sporty’s Air Scan II Aviation Radio/Scanner gives pilots and aviation buffs two radios in one. With our exclusive Aviation Interrupt feature you can listen to a ballgame, talk-radio or music and never miss an aviation transmission. Equipped with Bluetooth, the Air Scan II can easily pair to a phone or iPad for playing music from your favorite app. Perfect for the desk at your FBO or your workbench in the hangar, the Air Scan II is an easy way to monitor aviation traffic while still listening to your favorite music.

Memory

Store up to 10 different frequencies from each tunable source using the Preset feature. This allows you to quickly scroll through your local frequencies without having to type them in every time. The 10 aviation presets are used for the Aviation Interrupt feature.

Aviation Interrupt™

While listening to your favorite AM/FM station or Bluetooth/Aux source, the Air Scan II silently scans up to 10 preset channels for activity. When a signal is detected on any of these channels, it interrupts the music and plays the aviation transmission. When the transmission ends, the Air Scan II “returns you to your regularly scheduled program.

Bluetooth/Aux In

Don’t want to listen to FM or AM radio stations? Use the Bluetooth feature to pair your phone or tablet to the radio for listening with your favorite app. You can also use a standard 3.5 aux input cable (sold separately) to plug in your phone or iPad if it has a 3.5mm headphone jack.

External Speaker

Use the dedicated 3.5mm headphone jack to connect the Air Scan II to external speakers. Here at Sporty's Pilot Shop, we connect an Air Scan II to the ramp speakers, so linemen never miss a radio call.

Package includes Air Scan II radio, 110V wall plug, telescoping BNC antenna and user guide.

Air Scan II Feature

  • Aviation Interrupt
  • 10 priority aviation memory locations
  • Telescoping antenna with aviation compatible BNC connector
  • External power jack
  • External speaker jack

Fun radio
Looks and works but could be picking up our airport "AZO" better than it does. Not bad however. The interupt feature works well and the AM/FM work well also.

Disappointed
Disappointed product, very poor reception should be some way to make the communications to be listened. Living at 6 miles of the airport nothing can be heard. So noisy when some communication is found.

Air Scan II Radio
It does not receive very well. Without an external outside antenna it will miss a lot of transmissions. Also, it does not scan programmed frequencies, only banks of frequencies.

Thank you for the review. Scanning the programmed frequencies can be done by pressing the Aviation interrupt button. This can be done in any mode (FM, AM, Airband, BT or AUX).

Dissapointed
I live in a fairly large city with multiple civilian and military airports. This scanner couldn't pick anything up.

Response from Sporty's Pilot Shop
Thank you for the review. The Air Scan II will only scan civilian VHF frequencies 118-137. The military UHF frequencies are much higher. Also, rather than scanning the entire frequency band, program the local CTAF and ATC frequencies into the memory. Scanning the 10 memory channels will provide more reception of transmissions.
