The FAA is reminding US 121 operators that they have until January 1, 2020, to upgrade their current traffic avoidance system to ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast) compliance. To date, this affects roughly 7,000 air transport aircraft (not including General Aviation or Business Aviation). For European operators, this mandate becomes effective January 1, 2016. Both European and US aviation agencies have concluded that there will be no extensions and/or waivers.
STS Engineering Solutions (STSES) has vast industry experience in developing and certifying ADS-B aircraft installations for all models of aircraft. This is based on working with various hardware OEMs for overall FAA and EASA compliance. Please contact us at 1-877-707-5767 for your free design certification estimate.
