328 Design and ACC Columbia Jet Services offers ADS-B Out on G150 and G200s
328 Design has partnered with Columbia Jet Service to offer an Rockwell Collins STC for ADS-B Out on Gulfstream G150 & G200 aircraft.
It is the first time that this type of STC has been available in Europe.
ADS-B technology is vital in maintaining future efficient airspace management particularly during busy periods. It uses satellite and transponder technology to provide key benefits in an ADS-B environment, including the capability for more aircraft to operate safely in the same airspace, so congestion is reduced.
Jörg Gorkenant, chief operating officer and head of 328DO said: “We are very pleased to offer this important ADS-B Out STC for Gulfstream G150 & G200 aircraft. It not only enhances aircraft visibility and reduces the risk of air to air collision but it also offers added comfort and convenience for operators and their passengers, as well as reducing the overall cost of ownership. With the mandate dates fast approaching and thousands of aircraft remaining to equip, we encourage owners and operators to take advantage of it now.”
ADS-B Out compliance is required by June 7th, 2020 in Europe, preceded by the US on January 1st, 2020. The ADS-B STC is already mandatory in Australia, Canada (Hudson Bay and Oceanic Airspace), China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Vietnam.
