WASHINGTON The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) wants to remind general aviation operators taking advantage of the agencys Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) rebate program that rebate reservations must be made within 90 days of the installation of the appropriate equipment.
Operators have 90 days from the time the reservation is made to install compliant ADS-B avionics. If not, the rebate will expire and be made available to others.
The FAA last month issued the last of 20,000 $500 rebate reservations offered to general aviation aircraft owners. Since then, returned or expired reservations are made available each Wednesday at 1 p.m. ET on a first-come, first-served basis.
