FAA Relaunches ADS-B Out Rebate

Feature Story image - FAA Relaunches ADS-B Out Rebate

The Federal Aviation Administration announced it is relaunching its $500 Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) rebate program effective through October 11, 2019. The agency is making another $4,900,000 available under the rebate program, allowing rebates for about 9,792 ADS-B Out Installations.

January 1, 2020 is an important and costly date for most aircraft owners and pilots. Aircraft flying in airspace where a transponder is currently required will need to be equipped with a compliant ADS-B Out system. The reopening of the ADS-B Out rebate program will make our national airspace system safer and more efficient. By incentivizing even more aircraft owners to apply this technology to their aircraft, we can expedite this process. This will be the final opportunity for GA aircraft owners to take advantage of the FAA rebate before the 2020 deadline. The previous rebate program, which started in September 2016 and ran for a year, issued more than 10,000 rebate payments.
