Pilots, dispatchers, ground personnel, and other aviation professionals are all required to have an aviation radio licence in most countries.
Different countries use different names and abbreviations for their radio licences, such as Radio Telephony Restricted Aero RTR-A in India, Restricted Operator Certificate-Aeronautical ROC-A in Canada, Aeronautical Radio Operator Certificate AROC in Australia.
According to DGCA regulations, the RTR(A) is a mandatory requirement for all aviation professionals in India to work as a pilot or flight dispatcher. The license holder is responsible and authorized for Operating All radio frequencies and radio equipment onboard an aircraft.
RTR-A or Radio Telephony Restricted Aero Exam in India is considered the toughest exam a pilot trainee must undergo in order to become a commercial pilot or an aviation professional in India.
The Aviation Radio Licence in Canada is called the Restricted Operator Certificate-Aeronautical (ROC-A) and is governed by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED) (similar to WPC in India).
Compared to the DGCA RTR-A, the Canadian ROC-A licensing is relatively uncomplicated with minimal prerequisites. You can take the exam on demand, either virtually or in person, and on successful completion, you receive a license in the mail in about 14 business days.
