17 Jul 2018 General ADS-B Information Released

CAA releases general ADS-B Information for Aircraft Owners and Operators in the NZFIR

New Zealand is implementing Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) as its main source of surveillance data for air traffic management. With the new Rule coming into effect in July 2018, find out what you need to know about ADS-B and how this might affect you.

The rule change to mandate ADS-B for above FL 245 includes requirements that also apply to operators below FL 245. If you already have an ADS-B system, or you equip with ADS-B ahead of the proposed 2021 mandate, your ADS-B system will need to meet the performance standards set out in the rule for above FL 245.
