General aviation is benefiting from changes to the switch to NextGen — think WAAS instrument approaches and T-routes — but the FAA needs to lay out a clear case for equipping aircraft with affordable systems to offer new benefits. That’s what the National Business Aviation Association’s Ed Bolen told a Congressional panel last week, according to a report at AOPA.org. “The FAA could alleviate lingering user uncertainty about costs and benefits of equipping aircraft early in the transition by laying out a clear case that firmly establishes system requirements, incentivizes early adoption, and provides accountability through the establishment of a comprehensive timeline and budget,” the report quotes Bolen.
