ADS-B Out Mandate (AOPA Video)

This is something that has gotten my attention especially since we are in the initial phases of upgrading our Cessna 182RG avionics.

The FAA on May 27 published its final rule mandating what owners will be required to have on board their aircraft in order to operate in the new satellite-based air traffic control system known as NextGen. By 2020, Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast Out (ADS-B Out) will be required equipment in all airspace that currently requires a transponder. According to AOPA, the ADS-B Out equipment that the rule requires will cost the individual general aviation aircraft owner thousands of dollars but only duplicates what already exists with today’s radio transponder. The association is conducting a detailed analysis of the rule to further understand its impact on GA.
“ADS-B” is an acronym that stands for:
Automatic – It’s always ON and requires no operator intervention
Dependent – It depends on an accurate GNSS signal for position data
Surveillance – It provides “Radar-like” surveillance services, much like RADAR
Broadcast – It continuously broadcasts aircraft position and other data to any aircraft, or ground station equipped to receive ADS-B
