Additional Event Information & Acknowledgement of Industry Sponsor(s):

Join us at this free seminar and discover everything you did not know about ADS-B from the FAA Safety Team person (former Operations Inspector in Juneau, Alaska) who was responsible for the Capstone Phase II deployment (ADS-B / WAAS) in Southeast Alaska.  We will talk about what it is, the in’s and out’s, and the what happened in Southeast Alaska.  You will discover why this made such a huge difference to the 40 commercial operators and 76,000 residents of this region, and improved every aspect of flying in that region.  This exciting and informative discussion (no PowerPoint) will take you through the Southeast Alaska deployment, what we did, how we did it, and why it really worked!  We will also delve in the who, what, where and why of getting financing for these installations.  Yes, there are options available.

The FAA has mandated that all aircraft be equipped with ADS-B out capability by Jan. 1, 2020 – this is a good thing, not a bad thing!  You will have a chance to ask the experts as various avionics manufacturers will be in attendance with ADS-B equipment on display, so you can get any questions you may have answered by the people who have done it. 

It does not get any better than this.  More than 150,000 aircraft will need to be ADS-B equipped – so time is short.
