A General Radiotelephone Operator License (PG), or better known as GROL, is required to adjust, maintain, or
internally repair FCC licensed radiotelephone transmitters in the aviation, maritime, and international fixed
public radio services. The GROL is, by far, the most popular – accounting for more than 80% of all commercial
radio operator licenses issued by the FCC.
FCC GROL is an important credential to solidify your knowledge and skill in the realm of aviation, marine,
and land mobile communications. These licenses are key that you will need if you are an aviation and marine
electronics technician, Captain of a small ship, or a tech repairing and maintaining aircraft, ship, or
land-based radio equipment or marine RADARs.
Today’s aircraft are becoming technologically advanced with electronic integrated mechanical components. An
A&P with knowledge of basic electronic and electrical knowledge will become valuable. Here are 3 reasons an
aviation technician should consider getting their GROL:
There are several certificates and licenses for avionic techs or electrical techs. For example, the
Electronic Technician Association- International. Many employers will accept some but the one license that
is commonly accepted and widely used is the GROL. If you’re an avionic or electrical tech, look on
Glassdoor or Indeed and check some of the flyers for certification must have. 99% of the time you’ll see
the GROL as the only or one of the certification accepted by employers.
For many of us, the resume is the first impression of yourself. So strengthen your resume by providing
more value to the employer and separate yourselves from the rest of the candidates. If you’re an A&P
mechanic who will see seldom use of their license and many A&P will tell you that they haven’t used it,
“it’s useless and you’ll never use it!” Good chance that is the case I would ask will it help get a job?
Adding this tool on your toolbelt can add value and separation from regular A&P techs.
Avionic techs in the aerospace industry according to the May 2018 review BLS average $64,140. As you
review the statistics, the top 10% (or 90 percentile) of avionic technicians earn an average $94, 710. The
need for these techs will be increasing due to more aircraft being retrofitting with new tech. In May
2018, the median annual wages for aircraft mechanics and service technicians in the scheduled air
transportation pay $83, 870 and aerospace product and parts manufacturing pay $64, 510.
It’s a good idea that Airframe and Powerplant technician must not restrict themselves to working within the
A&P scope. The technology is constantly changing and to stay competitive is by continuing to improve yourself.
Education is an investment for yourself and it’s an investment for the workforce.
These companies cut costs by hiring employees that hold multiple certifications or licenses. An aircraft
technician who obtains the A&P and GROL will become a valuable team member and improve their career
opportunities. Prepare and GO FCC
