I report the results of a spectroscopic follow-up of the nova V1663 Aql performed at the Loiano telescope. The emission lines in the spectra have been identified to study the early evolution. The spectra measured some weeks after the maximum show Balmer lines, several Fe multiplets and low ionization lines. The presence of Fe multiplets confirms the original classification of V1663 Aql as a Fe II nova. I have built the light curve using the observations of IAU circulars, VSNET, AFOEV, ASAS databases to estimate the parameters of the nova: time and magnitude of maximum, and the decline rates by two or three magnitudes. The parameters have been used to deduce a distance of V1663 Aql in the range 7.3 divided by 11.3 kpc. (c) 2006 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
