LINCOLN, NEB — As we stop counting weeks and start counting days until the FAA’s January 1, 2020, deadline for upgrading aircraft to Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast, Duncan Aviation has experienced delays in equipment delivery dates. Anticipating this possibility earlier this year, the company invested in Global Positioning System (GPS) and Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS) sensors and recievers from a variety of manufacturers.
These sensors are necessary for upgrading your aircraft to both the ADS-B and to WAAS/Localizer Performance With Vertical Guidance (LPV). Many owner/operators have already upgraded to WAAS/LPV, anticipating a possible future mandate.
Currently, however, there is no mandate, but aircraft equipped with WAAS/LPV will receive preferential treatment when flying in United States airspace.
For more information on which sensors and receivers Duncan Aviation has in stock, to get a quote, or to schedule time for installations, please contact John Spellmeyer or Michael Kussatz:
