Thank you for your interest in our Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) publication. We feel that the time is right to make this updated information available. We have spent countless hours researching all aspects of ADS-B, including deadlines and available equipment, and we feel that we lead the industry with our knowledge and capabilities. We have developed several programs for not only ADS-B, but also for the other Next Generation (NextGen) technologies. For instances, we've included updated information regarding Traffic Alert and Collision Avoidance System II (TCAS) 7.1 software in a section near the end of this publication.
At Duncan Aviation, we're on the cutting-edge of avionics technology, and it's no different with ADS-B. We understand the regulations, trust our OEM partners, and know the equipment that is currently available. Additionally, over the past decade, we have talked with hundreds of our customers and manufacturers so we can provide the most useful and comprehensive information available with regard to ADS-B and the other NextGen mandates. Our focus in this publication is primarily on Part 25 aircraft, and the information here is current as of February 2015.
Duncan Aviation acknowledges the help and support of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) ADS-B Groups, the FAA Engineering and Safety Groups, the Aircraft Electronics Association and the avionics manufacturers who are working on the products to make your flying safer, easier and more affordable. Remember that the best-equipped aircraft will be the best-served by the world's air traffic systems.
As always, we strive to improve ourselves and our knowledge. Feel free to contact our avionics experts with any of your ADS-B concerns, questions or challenges.
