NextGen Information Meeting

August 1, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

NextGen is coming! Are you ready? Do you know what to expect? Get introduced to some of the concepts of NextGen and the equipment that you will need before January 1, 2020. FAASTeam Maintenance/Airworthiness Program Manager James Dangerfield will cover Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) system components & characteristics to include ground infrastructure as well as aircraft equipment. Attendees will gain a new understanding of ADS-B Airspace. We will explain why ADS-B is better for the country and the National Airspace System.

Plan to learn about the airspace where ADS-B Out will be required along with an overview of ADS-B requirements per airspace. Facilitators will explain what is needed for an aircraft to comply with the ADS-B rule, field approval guidance and prevention of common installation errors. With ADS-B operational across the country, pilots in equipped aircraft have access to air traffic services that provide a new level of safety, better situational awareness, and more efficient search and rescue.

We will also describe how ADS-B works; the difference between ADS-B Out and ADS-B In; TIS-B, FIS-B and ADS-R; and how to get ADS-B services. ADS-B ground stations are operational across the nation, broadcasting traffic, weather, and flight information to appropriately equipped aircraft. Air traffic control facilities are rapidly being updated to provide ADS-B surveillance services.

NextGen is a comprehensive suite of state-of-the-art technologies and procedures that, in short, enable aircraft to move more directly from Point A to Point B. For more information about Nextgen including equipment rebates, visit the FAA Nextgen Website at: https://www.faa.gov/nextgen/.

FAASTeam Representative Mr. Jim Hoyt will also be assisting with questions. There is no cost to register for this program, and participants are eligible to receive 1 credit for Basic Knowledge Topic 3 in the WINGS Pilot Proficiency Program or 1 hour total for AMT.
