The January 1, 2020 deadline for ADS-B installation looms large and aircraft owners should equip as soon as possible to capture the benefits of ADS-B and ensure they will continue to be able to fly in all airspace. FAA is now offering rebates of $500 to owners of fixed-wing, single-engine piston aircraft based on their purchase of avionics that have received an ADS-B TSO and meet ADS-B Out rule requirements.
Don’t delay as the program will run for approximately one year or until the funds for all remaining rebates are exhausted, whichever comes first. Eligible aircraft include U.S.-registered, fixed-wing, single-engine piston aircraft first registered before January 1, 2016.
Rebate reservations can only be made within 90 days of installation. Within 60 days of installation, aircraft must be flown in ADS-B airspace for a minimum of 30 minutes with at least 10 aggregate minutes of maneuvering. More information is available at FAA.gov/nextgen.
