The ADS-B mandates are fast approaching and there is literally no escaping the need to upgrade your aircraft to meet the upcoming mandates. Failure to comply will effectively result in your aircraft being grounded or being subject to non-preferred and inefficient routing, which in turn will result in long delays and higher fuel burn.
While the ADS-B mandate isn’t exactly new news, with the mandate deadlines in 2020 it is worth revisiting some of the basics. In the first of our Expert Forums in association with Gama Aviation our avionics experts discuss the upcoming mandate.
So ADS-B is coming, and it’s actually coming faster than you think. The FAA mandate is less than 1,000 days from now – with the EASA mandate close on its heels. If you operate in airspace that currently requires a Mode C or Mode S transponder, you’ll need to be equipped with ADS-B “Out” by January 1st 2020 in the US and June 7th 2020 in Europe.
