Jet Center Medford is hosting this special informational Garmin seminar to explain recent FAA mandates that affect all aircraft operating in airspace.

The issue:

ADS-B, or Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast, is a cornerstone of NextGen air traffic modernization, and the FAA has mandated that aircraft operating in airspace that now requires a Mode C transponder must be equipped with ADS-B Out by Jan. 1, 2020.

ADS-B Out transmits information about altitude, airspeed, and location derived through GPS from an equipped aircraft to ground stations and to other equipped aircraft in the vicinity. Air traffic controllers use the information to “see” participating aircraft in real time with the goal of improving traffic management.

ADS-B in, which is not part of the mandate and requires additional equipment, allows participating aircraft to receive traffic and weather information from ADS-B ground stations and nearby aircraft broadcasting their positions through ADS-B Out. This information can be displayed in the cockpit to improve situational awareness,

The ADS-B Out rule does not affect current transponder requirements, meaning aircraft must continue to carry their transponders even after equipping for ADS-B Out.

Unlike most rulemaking activities which are safety-based, the basis of the ADS-B Out mandate is to support the FAA’s Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). The FAA has said that the mandate will not greatly increase or decrease safety, but is necessary to move forward with NextGen.
