PILOT’S GUIDE

According to the company, it is developing a 978 UATbased ADS-B solution, with the goal being an ADS-B Out/In system available in both a panel-mounted and remote form factors. Sandia has targeted $3,500 as the list price for its panel-mounted 978 UAT box. Bottom Line There are many arguments, pro and con, on the value of ADS-B and what additional capabilities it presents for the average general aviation operator when compared with current ATC services, existing technologies for traffic avoidance and the datalinks available in the cockpit today. In some ways, the FAA has more or less decided the issue by making ADS-B Out mandatory for accessing certain airspace beginning in 2020. For many operators, the question will be, “How can I comply with the ADS-B Out mandate and obtain the FIS-B and TIS-B services of ADS-B In as quickly and inexpensively as possible?” The final answers will depend on how the aircraft is equipped presently and what additional capabilities are desired. That should come as no real surprise.

But, ADS-B In services likely are available now, where you fly, and certainly will be by the end of 2013. In other words, depending on how you use your existing aircraft, how it’s equipped and what you want as its final configuration, the benefits of ADS-B In are available now and can be attained for not much more in the way of additional cost over installing ADS-B Out alone. And, don’t forget the additional expense and downtime of installing ADS-B In equipment separately. Did we mention that FIS-B and TIS-B are free once the hardware is installed? Still want to put off making an ADS-B decision? As we get closer to the 2020 deadline, there certainly will be more products available, but it’s not likely there will be more avionics shops. And as 2020 looms, increasing demand likely will boost prices both for the products themselves and their installation. In the words of the old motor oil commercial, “You can pay me now, or pay me later.” q Editor's Note: For the seven key questions every pilot should ask about ADS-B, read more on page 60.
