FAA Calls on the Aviation Industry for Help

The FAA wants to collaborate in order to equip for NextGen and help increase safety and efficiency.

The Federal Aviation Administration will host a "Call to Action" summit on Oct. 28 to engage the aviation industry in meeting the Jan. 1, 2020, deadline to equip aircraft with new avionics technology.

FAA and the aviation industry stakeholders plan to discuss how they can work together to resolve barriers and address potential challenges to meeting the mandate to equip aircraft with Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B). ADS-B will move aviation technology from a ground radar system to satellite-based GPS technology, increasing safety and efficiency by providing a more accurate view of aircraft location.

"The FAA has met its commitment and built the foundation for ADS-B," said FAA Deputy Administrator Mike Whitaker. "It is time for all users of the national airspace – avionics suppliers, aircraft integrators, operators, and installers – to work together to ensure that all aircraft flying in controlled airspace are equipped with these NextGen avionics. The full benefits of increase safety and efficiency of the national airspace depend on 100 percent equipage."

In May 2010, the FAA published a rule that requires all aircraft flying in specific, controlled airspace to equip with ADS-B Out avionics by 2020.

    The MGC Simple Plus

    The MGC Simple Plus is a simple-to-use, portable multi-gas detector that runs continuously for three years without needing to be recharged or routinely calibrated after its initial charge and calibration during manufacturing. The detector reliably tests a worksite’s atmosphere for hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, oxygen and combustible gases (LEL). Additionally, it is durable enough to withstand the harshest treatment and environments, which is why it has an IP 68 rating. The MGC Simple Plus is also compatible with a variety of accessories, such as Gas Clip Technologies’ new GCT External Pump. Visit gascliptech.com for more information. 3
