Have your say on ADS-B options for VFR aircraft
CASA is seeking feedback on a proposed amendment to introduce a greater variety of technical standards for Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) for aircraft flying under the visual flight rules (VFR).
The proposal will enable VFR operators who wish to voluntarily fit ADS-B to choose from a broader range of systems on the market, some of which are available at a lower cost than what is allowable under current standards.
CASA is hoping that the changes will encourage a greater fitment of ADS-B in VFR aircraft so that pilots can begin to enjoy the safety benefits of this technology.
Having an ADS-B transmitting system (ADS-B OUT) will help you to be more visible to other aircraft, and if you also have a receiving system (ADS-B IN), will enable you to see other ADS-B OUT-equipped aircraft in your vicinity.
To provide your feedback on the proposal, head to the Consultation Hub before Friday 13 March.
