y the time Jan. 1, 2020, appears on
calendars, aircraft operators in the U.S. will
need certified ADS-B Out equipment if they
want to fly in certain airspace. The Federal Aviation
Administration set the deadline in 2010, and
nothing on today's horizon suggests it's likely to
change. If your operations involve other countries,
ADS-B - or automatic dependent surveillancebroadcast - already is in use in Australia (above
FL300) and Canada (the Hudson Bay area).
Beginning in 2017, the European Union will require
ADS-B aboard aircraft with maximum gross takeoff
weights greater than 12,500 pounds, or those
capable of cruising at more than 250 knots. New
aircraft in the EU will be required to carry the
technology beginning in 2015.
Back in the U .S ., installation of required ground
stations is mostly complete on both coasts and
throughout the South and Southwest, with additional
sites set to come online and close existing coverage
gaps in central and northern states during 2014 .
With the service already up and running in most
parts of the U .S ., operators of all stripes have begun
equipping their cockpits . According to the FAA,
carriers like United Airlines and JetBlue Airways

are using the technology in projects designed to
demonstrate its benefits and gather operational data .
Two Sides
That's what might be considered the "required"
side of ADS-B, the "Out" side . But there's another
side to the technology, the "In" side, which is
optional . The free traffic (TIS-B) and flight information
(FIS-B) available via ADS-B In was supposed to be
the FAA's carrot to coax general aviation operators
into early adoption of ADS-B Out . One reason may
have been a presumption the market for airborne
ADS-B equipment would coalesce around a "onesize-fits-all" kind of airborne box enabling both
parts of the technology . But that was before the
proliferation of devices enabling in-flight reception of
ADS-B In data on consumer-grade tablets running
appropriate software .
Some products, such as Garmin International's
GDL 39 and Sporty's Pilot Shops' Stratus portable
ADS-B In receivers, make it relatively easy and
inexpensive for general aviation operators to obtain
ADS-B In's benefits without the need for expensive
ADS-B Out installations . And an informal survey of
general aviation operators currently lacking ADS-B
