Program for Saturday, December 9. Ins and Outs of ASD-B

This coming Saturday, Chapter 1541 will present a program covering the basics of ADS-B. Gathering at the chapter hangar (S-12) at the Lincoln Airport, we’ll start at 08:00 with a fine pancake breakfast.

At 09:00, we’ll spend an hour or so looking at ADS-B and how it applies to pilots and aircraft owners. If you can’t even spell ADS-B, this is for you. The 2020 equipage requirement is two years away; be informed and ready for what is coming.

On the agenda:

  • What is ADS-B is and what it’s not
  • If, when, and why you might want ADS-B
  • The two basic types of ADS-B (UAT transceiver or 1090 ES transponder) and what each will give you
  • The actual airspace requirements
  • Some equipment options

Don’t forget this is the last opportunity to get tickets for the Xmas party!
