The ADS-B dilemma: How soon should HEMS operators act?
from By Michael P. Koval
A significant mandate for HEMS operators is looming on the horizon. The Federal Aviation Administration requires that aircraft operating in certain classes of airspace must be equipped with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast Out, or ADS-B, by Jan. 1, 2020. This FAA ruling provides a logistical challenge to the entire industry and especially HEMS operators. The lack of certified repair stations coupled with the overwhelming demand for installations will likely create tremendous backlogs in the next few years.
