WASHINGTON, DC – On Wednesday, June 11, the Small Business Committee, under the chairmanship of Rep. Sam Graves (R-MO), a pilot who also co-chairs the House General Aviation Caucus, will conduct a hearing titled FAA’s 2020 NextGen Mandate: Benefits and Challenges for General Aviation.
Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast doesn’t roll off the tongue, and neither does ADS-B. But when it comes to what this system means for you and your aircraft, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.
Cincinnati Avionics wants to make the decision easier, so it has compiled information on ADS-B to answer all the questions you may have that you can access at CincinnatiAvionics.com/ADSB.
When it comes time to update your panel to accommodate ADS-B, you can view available ADS-B avionics along with a description of the capabilities of each piece of equipment.
“Our experience developing and enhancing Stratus put us in the forefront early on of ADS-B experts,” said Cincinnati Avionics President Chuck Gallagher. “We have smoothed the transition to ADS-B for dozens of aircraft owners. We’re patient; we’re thorough; we will do it right the first time.”
Aircraft owners have until 2020 to update their panels, but it makes sense to start the process now at Cincinnati Avionics, company officials said.
Free consultations are available – talk one-on-one with a fellow pilot – by calling 513-735-9595 or emailing Avionics@Sportys.com.
