23 Jan 2020 ADS-B draft rule marks further significant NSS milestone

On 19 December 2019, the Civil Aviation Authority released a Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) relating to the requirement to operate ADS-B in all controlled airspace from 31 December 2021. This is the latest milestone surrounding ADS-B for the NSS programme, following the announcement of the ADS-B Grant, and is a further significant step towards the modernization of New Zealand’s airspace.

 The NPRM can be found here, and is now open for consultation; submissions close on 21 February 2020. The NSS team encourages anyone that is affected by these changes to read the proposal in full, and comment on the proposal where necessary.
