What is ADS-B?

ADS-B is a satellite-based surveillance system that uses GPS technology to communicate detailed information to nearby aircraft. ADS-B Out broadcasts an aircraft’s location, airspeed and other data to ground stations which then transmit the data to air traffic control displays and to nearby aircraft equipped to receive the data via ADS-B In. Operators of aircraft with ADS-B can enjoy weather and traffic reports delivered directly to the cockpit without paying for monthly subscriptions.

Still not sure how this affects you? Without ADS-B, a standard weather and traffic system would start at $25,000 with installation. A Garmin GTX-345, which provides ADS-B In and ADS-B Out information, starts at $7,000 with installation. Beat the rush and get the mandated system for less than half the cost of a traditional weather and traffic system while enjoying the same benefits- for free.
