NBAA, Other Organizations Praise Congressional Letters Supporting Contract Towers

As Congress prepares to work on Fiscal Year 2015 transportation funding and FAA reauthorization legislation, aviation stakeholders are expressing “renewed concerns” about the preservation of 252 federal contract towers, NBAA said. Fifty-five senators recently signed a letter asking FAA Administrator Michael Huerta to consider “all perspectives” in the effort to streamline tower operations as the FAA continues to deal with budget pressures. A similar letter, signed by 114 members of the House, reiterated the Senate’s call for greater transparency from the FAA regarding its intentions for the contract tower program.

Europe Delays ADS-B out Equipment Mandate

Europe has delayed the mandate for ADS-B out equipage in its airspace. The earliest ADS-B out requirement in Europe was Jan. 8, 2015, for new aircraft, with retrofit installations due Dec. 7, 2017. The new dates are June 8, 2016, for new aircraft and June 7, 2020, for retrofit.
The revised date for retrofits is more closely aligned with the U.S. ADS-B out mandate, which requires the equipment to be operational in aircraft that fly where transponders are currently required after midnight on Dec. 31, 2019. While some aircraft owners and operators are no doubt hoping that the U.S. mandate will be delayed, FAA Administrator Michael Huerta has repeatedly said that there is no chance of this happening.
Speaking late last month at EAA AirVenture 2014, Huerta said, “ADS-B out is one of the foundational elements of NextGen and it allows us to bring you many benefits. I know that many of you are concerned about the 2020 mandate to equip with ADS-B out. There’s still a five-and-a-half-year window to get that done, but the date is firm. I encourage you to equip before the deadline to avoid delays at repair stations as the deadline draws closer.”
