A Cost-Effective ADS-B Out Solution
For Boeing 737 NG Series - Supplemental Type Certificate No. ST04009NY
AerTrak™, an ADS-B Out system developed by AerSale®, is approved for Boeing 737 NG series aircraft by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to comply with the Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Operations rule, a critical part of the agency's Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). Beginning January 1, 2020, the FAA has mandated that aircraft operating in airspace defined by 14 CFR § 91.225 must be equipped with an ADS-B Out system that meets the minimum performance requirements of 14 CFR § 91.227.
What is ADS-B?
ADS-B provides enhanced navigational accuracy using precise tracking via global positioning satellite (GPS) signals. Reducing risk and improving safety, the technology increases navigational coverage, especially in remote areas beyond radar range. Additionally, ADS-B enables more direct flight plans, thereby saving time, costs, and reducing emissions.
Advantages of the AerTrak ADS-B Out System
- Cost-effective for operators of Boeing 737 NG aircraft fitted with any OEM transponder/MMR combination
- Seamless integration with most existing avionics and cockpit controls
- Easy path to ADS-B Out compliance
