Leveraging decades of aircraft modification experience to make ADS-B (Out) compliance more efficient and affordable
Countries worldwide are implementing a more accurate way of tracking aircraft. The FAA has been systematically upgrading its air traffic control (ATC) network with a new global positioning satellite (GPS) based aircraft tracking technology called Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) as part of its next generation ATC upgrade initiative - Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen). ADS-B will eventually replace radar as the primary air traffic surveillance method for global ATC monitoring, and the FAA has published regulations mandating ADS-B for applicable aircraft operations. ADS-B will allow equipped aircraft and ground vehicles to broadcast their detailed identity and precise location to other aircraft and ATC. This capability is called ADS-B (Out), while an aircraft’s capability to receive this information is called ADS-B (In). Importantly, the FAA has mandated that all aircraft must be ADS-B (Out) equipped by January 1, 2020.
When we looked to upgrade AerSale’s aircraft to incorporate ADS-B (Out), the existing options were very expensive. Seeing an opportunity to prospectively save AerSale and our customers millions in ADS-B (Out) upgrade expenditures, AerSale’s engineered solutions group set out to develop our own ADS-B (Out) solutions. Successfully developed, tested, and certified for service, AerTrak is our advanced cost-saving alternative for compliance with the FAA’s requirement for ADS-B (Out) capability.
Our AerSafe customers have already saved millions by avoiding the purchase of expensive OEM inerting systems to meet current FTFR requirements for their portfolio aircraft, and we invite you to speak with an AerSale representative about how AerSafe can also help save your organization time and money.
AerTrak is FAA approved for Boeing 737 Classic, 737 NG, 757-200, and 777-200 series aircraft to comply with current ADS-B requirements for aircraft operations in airspace defined by 14 CFR § 91.225 that must be equipped to meet the ADS-B Out mandate (ref: 14 CFR § 91.227 - Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Operations rule).
