Transponder ADS-B

Unread post by rwaldeck » Mon Jan 21, 2019 7:53 pm

I’ll be moving my Gyroplane to Virginia Airport and need to fit a Transponder.
Transponders are expensive and I only want to do/fit it once.
With the forthcoming requirements (in 2020?) for ADS-B (enhanced Mode S with the 1090ES modification) capability,
which Make & models should I look at and where to buy ? Plse advise,

ADSB is not coming for 2020 so don’t let anyone fool you. It will not come to SA for a long time. The document that was sent out was for discussion only not implementation. Read the AIC carefully it was for discussion.
