FAA Offers ADS-B Rebate

Starting this Fall, the FAA is offering a mon­etary incentive to help owners of general aviation aircraft equip with the required avionics that comply with the ADS-B Out rule that will take effect Jan. 1, 2020. The agency will offer a $500 rebate to eligible aircraft owners. To be eligible, your aircraft must be a fixed-wing, single-engine piston aircraft that is U.S.-registered and not currently equipped with Version 2 ADS-B Out. Go to www.faa.gov/go/rebate for more information on the program rules.

3rd class medical is a thing of the past (almost)!!

You’re thinking, what does the 3rd class medical have to do with ADS-B? Well, other than being great news for general aviation, I think there’s a connection. For one thing, getting rid of the 3rd class medical will see an increase in older, more experienced (hopefully) pilots flying older GA aircraft, within the 2020 ADS-B rule airspace:

For an ADS-B refresher (to summarize 14 CFR § 91.225):

“In the U.S., if you operate in airspace that currently requires a Mode C or Mode S transponder, you’ll need to be equipped with ADS-B “Out” by 2020. This includes Class A, B, or C airspaces, Class E airspace at and above 10,000 ft MSL over the 48 contiguous United States and the District of Columbia, and Class E airspace over the Gulf of Mexico from the coastline of the U.S. out to 12 nm and above 3,000 ft MSL. Even if you don’t fall into one of these categories, you’ll still need an ADS-B “Out” solution if you find yourself flying from the surface up to 10,000 ft MSL within 30 miles of most primary Class B airports.” (source)

There is no downside that I see other than more aging planes needing to be retrofit with compliant avionics by the end of the decade.

And to summarize the third class medical reform language from the Pilot’s Bill of Rights 2 package:

This law “allows a pilot who has maintained at least a third-class medical within the last 10 years to never visit an aviation medical examiner again. Only two obligations remain: First, pilots have to visit their personal physician once every four years and make an entry as such in their logbooks. A form has to be completed by the physician, indicating a checklist of exam items. The results of the visit are immaterial and not required to be FAA-reported. Second, every two years an online aeromedical course must be accomplished.”

Sounds simple. In theory, it is. But I still encourage you to read the fine print (here). At the outset, your physician might not be too excited about the process and might need a little education. But once the medical community has some experience with examination process, things should work better, and don’t forget to make the entry in your logbook.

FAA Releases Revised ADSB Advisory Circular

The FAA has published AC 20-165B, Airworthiness Approval of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast Out Systems, the guidance material for those seeking approval for installation of ADS-B Out systems.

The association pointed out that ADS-B Out upgrades “still require the initial approvals, but within specific limitation allows ADS-B Out installations to be treated as ‘normal’ avionics. As such, the evaluation of major/minor is normal. Second, the AC highlights the follow-on installation criteria of a previously approved system. Third, the AC contains the criterion for reuse of flight test data for follow-on installations of approved systems.”
