A friend of mine who runs an FBO and aviation newspaper called today and said he just received notification of his area being mandated to install ADS-B gear by the year 2020. Only a bit over 5 years from now.
I figured there are probably a couple experts on the subject here.
I am thinking of AK-Hunt who is already very knowledgeable on subjects like locator beacons.
What is your take on the subject? Is it worth while in Alaska, will it drive small owners out of flying with the costs?
