AOPA questions benefit of new ADS-B rule
A new FAA rule requiring the use of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast equipment has raised concern among aviation groups. The regulation calls for operators to upgrade to ADS-B on all aircraft flying in A, B and C airspace and above 10,000 feet within ten years. Melissa Rudinger, senior vice president of governmental affairs for the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, said that “the only real beneficiary of this new ADS-B Out mandate is the FAA.”
