NBAA welcomes incentive for ADS-B equipage


NBAA has welcomed an announcement from the FAA and Department of Transportation (DOT) that the US government will begin offering a US$500 rebate for owners and operators who install Automatic Dependent Broadcast-Surveillance (ADS-B) equipment into fixed-wing, single-engine, piston aircraft.

“The business aviation community has long embraced aviation technologies that enhance efficiency and safety – to take just a couple of examples, we can look to the industry’s support for GPS and reduced vertical separation minimum (RVSM) technologies,” said NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen.

“We know that ADS-B is foundational in the continuing development of a NextGen aviation system, which will bring further advancements in safety, efficiency and potentially other benefits to operators. Any ability to incentivize the installation of ADS-B is welcome, in that it will benefit not just the operators with the equipment, but the aviation system as a whole.

“We commend the DOT and the FAA for making this incentive available as part of the agencies’ NextGen-development planning.”
