In the database for common aviation there is this

"122.75000 M FixedAir-Air Fixed wing aircraft air-to-air "

Is this the only channels planes have to talk back and forth with each other? I am new to trying to pick up planes

There are several non formal ones, 123.450 comes to mind.

122.750 is allocated for air to air though.

123.45 is used here on a daily basis. You'll hear anything from "Hey how ya doin?" to scores of the recent game, or talk about that really attractive stewardess.


I also have the following freqs listed as air to air:
123.4
122.775
122.825
122.875

Air - Air

122.750 is the FCC / FAA assigned legitimate frequency. A number of others are also used, on an unofficial "ad-hock" basis like the 123.450 mentioned by others. It is very common.

123.125, 123.275, 123.425, 123.550, 123.150, 123.325, 123.475, 123.575, 123.250, 123.350, 123.525 are all officially licensed to air and ground stations in the flight test usage, however, you will hear lots of air-air on an unofficial basis on these channels. I suspect much of it is airline types chit-chatting. That is a only conjecture.

More: Lots of air-air @ airshows on 123.150, flight schools are on 123.200 & 123.300. Also, US Forest Service nationwide air - air is 135.975 and the FAA flight inspection aircraft coordinate on 135.850.

Happy listening,

Mark
