Last July, the FAA released the final rule for the Pilot Certification and Qualification Requirements for Air Carrier Operations – better known as the ATP certification rule. The rule requires pilots to hold an air transport pilot certificate in order to fly for an airline.

|ADS-B – A Pilot’s Guide||Thursday, October 2||8:00pm ET||John Zimmerman||Sign Up|
Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (better known as ADS-B) is a new technology that could revolutionize the way we fly. Unfortunately, much of the information related to ADS-B is unnecessarily confusing.
So what is ADS-B? Why should you care about it? Can you just ignore it?
No. While ADS-B may be confusing, it’s probably the most important technological change you will have to deal with as a pilot over the next two decades. So it’s worth the effort to learn this new language.
Join Sporty’s John Zimmerman as he discusses what you really need to know about ADS-B “out” and ADS-B “in.” Learn about panel-mount ADS-B solutions from Garmin, Aspen and others, plus the exciting developments in the portable ADS-B market. We’ll cut through the jargon so you understand what’s important – and what’s not.
