Coral Gables, Fla., March 6, 2019 – AerSale®, a global supplier of mid-life aircraft, engines, used serviceable material, and MRO services, announced today that the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the National Civil Aviation Agency of Brazil (ANAC) have approved the company’s AerTrak™ ADS-B Out system on Boeing 757-200 series aircraft (EASA 10068771) and (ANAC 2018S12-05). Last year, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) approved AerTrak for Boeing 737 NG series aircraft (ST04009NY) and Boeing 757-200 series aircraft (ST04011NY) to comply with the FAA’s Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Operations rule.
“This validation reaffirms our commitment to our European and Latin American customers,” said Iso Nezaj, Chief Technical Officer at AerSale. “With the benefit of no certification fees, operators now have a fully-compliant ADS-B Out system available to them. AerTrak is currently being expanded to more aircraft types, which will make this solution an obvious choice to even more operators worldwide.”
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 and costs, while reducing emissions. This technology enhances situational awareness for Air Traffic Control of aircraft with ADS-B Out capabilities and is mandated by the FAA effective January 2020, followed by EASA in June 2020.
AerTrak kits include all necessary parts and can be installed by AerSale’s technicians at any hangar around the world, typically requiring only three days of ground time. Lead time for ordering AerTrak is currently four weeks and allows operators to avoid potential installation facility backlogs, component shortages, and price premiums as the 2020 compliance deadline nears.
