According to a recent poll conducted by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, more than 58% of survey respondents indicated that they would install ADS-B equipment prior to the Jan. 1, 2020, deadline mandated by the FAA.
In addition. 3.7% planned to equip in the next six months, and another 8.7% plan to equip in the next year.
Less than 15% indicated they never planned to equip because they don’t fly in airspace where it’s required, while nearly 15% said they had already equipped to meet the mandate.
The association noted that the results from the poll questions do not necessarily represent the views of pilots, aircraft owners or AOPA members and therefore should not be used for research purposes.
How about you? When do you plan to equip? Join the conversation in the comments below.
