The entire aviation industry is trying to get our collective arms around the subject of ADS-B. There are still a number of questions which have murky answers at this point; however we want to get as much information in front of our customers as possible. The retrofit of business aircraft with ADS-B-compatible equipment will be a significant event for all of us. To a certain degree, every aircraft in U.S. airspace will be affected and we want to arm you with the right information to answer the questions posed to you and make informed decisions based on that information.
Much has been written on the ADS-B topic and is available online. We believe our efforts in finding and condensing this information should address many of your concerns on ADS-B for your aircraft.
New information regarding TCAS change 7.1 software is available and included in the section near the end of this publication.
