By now, you’ve probably heard of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) and the requirement for many airplanes to add an ADS-B Out transponder to the panel. But you may be confused about what exactly ADS-B is, why you should care and what you should do.

Williamsburg Flight Center can help to guide you through the process from start to finish. We’ll explain what ADS-B is all about and what it offers for pilots, so you can make a confident decision about your airplane’s avionics. We also offer a full complement of ADS-B avionics to suit almost any aircraft, from names you trust: Garmin, Appareo, Bendix/King and more.

Understanding ADS-B

At heart, ADS-B is a new way for Air Traffic Control to separate airplanes, but it can also offer free datalink weather and traffic. Here are 5 things to know before you upgrade to ADS-B:


ADS-B Out avionics will be required by January 1, 2020 in most airspace where you need a Mode C transponder today.

An approved WAAS GPS must be included in your ADS-B Out solution.

ADS-B Out compliance must be with panel-installed equipment (no portables).

ADS-B In equipage (for weather and traffic) is completely optional.

Avionics are available from Garmin, Bendix/King, Appareo, Aspen and others, starting under $5,000.
