How to Get Your ADS-B Rebate

Aircraft owners – Are you interested in the FAA’s ADS-B rebate? If your aircraft is eligible (U.S. registered, fixed-wing, single-engine piston aircraft), you must then complete the following steps:

  • Decide: Purchase TSO-certified avionics and schedule the installation on your eligible aircraft.
  • Reserve: Before installation, use the FAA’s ADS-B Rebate website to submit a rebate reservation for your eligible aircraft. You will receive a Rebate Reservation Code.
  • Install: TSO-certified ADS-B avionics are installed on your eligible aircraft (step 2 must have been completed).
  • Fly & Validate: You must fly your aircraft in “rule airspace” (e.g., Class B or C, Class E above 10,000 feet) as defined in 14 CFR 91.225 for a minimum of 30 minutes, with at least 10 aggregate minutes of maneuvering, within 60 days of the installation date in Step 3. One hour or more after your flight, you must validate the performance of your eligible aircraft’s ADS-B installation by requesting a Public Performance Report, available on the FAA’s ADS-B Rebate website. After a successful validation, you will receive an Incentive Code.
  • Claim: Visit the ADS-B Rebate website and submit your Rebate Reservation Code from Step 2, and your Incentive Code from Step 4, within 60 days of the scheduled installation date to claim your rebate.
