It all began with an idea, in 1956. An idea that would later transform the general aviation industry and inspire entire generations of pilots. Max Egon Becker founded Becker with a genuine passion for aerospace and a dream to build innovative high-tech aircraft radios, in a compact and modular design, based on the famous Becker luxury automobile radios of that time.
Particularly appreciated for their small size and weight, the Becker radios soon became the reference in the glider pilot community. With the introduction of radar-based air traffic surveillance, Becker then expanded its portfolio by offering mode A/C and later mode S transponders with the same care for reduced formats.
Max Egon’s son, Roland, driven by his father’s visionary ideas, has continued this success story by growing the brand’s commercial and industrial footprints around the globe. The company was able to complement along the years its portfolio in order to serve the business and commercial aviation industry, the air traffic management sector, as well as the special mission and military market, with constantly improved and safer products, designed in the pure tradition of German engineering.
This innovative spirit and dedication to hard work created a legacy of undisputed reliability and premium customer care for more than six decades.
