2020 ADS-B MANDATE INSTALLATIONS
On January 1, 2020, when operating in the airspace designated in 14 CFR § 91.225 you must be equipped with ADS-B Out Avionics that meet the performance requirements of 14 CFR §91.227. Aircraft not complying with the requirements may be denied access to this airspace.
Under the rule, ADS-B Out performance will be required to operate in:
+ Class A, B, and C.
+ Class E airspace within the 48 contiguous states and the District of Columbia at and above 10,000 feet MSL, excluding the airspace at and below 2,500 feet above the surface.
+ Class E airspace at and above 3,000 feet MSL over the Gulf of Mexico from the coastline of the United States out to 12 nautical miles.
+ Around those airports identified in 14 CFR part 91, Appendix D.
The ADS-B Out rule does not apply in the airspace defined in items 1 and 2 above for any aircraft that was not originally certificated with an electrical system or that has not subsequently been certified with such a system installed, including balloons and gliders.
Due to the large number of aircraft affected by this mandate, long wait times to equip your aircraft are expected the closer we approach the January 1, 2020 required compliance date. Equipping early will help you to avoid these wait times, as well as allow you to begin benefiting from ADS-B technology now! Schedule your aircraft with JAG Aviation to become compliant with this mandate today.
