Subject: March/April 2017 Issue of FAA Safety Briefing

Good day everyone. If you can, please help us get the word out on the new March/April 2017 issue of FAA Safety Briefing.  A cover image is also attached. Any assistance to help us spread the word would be greatly appreciated.

The March/April 2017 issue of FAA Safety Briefing focuses on Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B) technology, a foundational component of FAA’s NextGen system for improving the safety and efficiency of the NAS. Articles cover the myriad safety and technology benefits ADS-B offers, as well as provide important details on the purchase, installation, and operation of ADS-B equipment.

Feature articles include:

•    ADS-B 101 – What It Is, and What It Means To You (p. 8)
•    Getting It Right – What You Need to Know About ADS-B Installation Errors (p. 11)
•    Everyone Loves a Rebate – The FAA’s General Aviation ADS-B Rebate Program Explained (p. 14)
•    What’s In a Name? – How to Avoid an ADS-B Call Sign Mismatch (p.18)
•    Top 10 Things You Need to Know About ADS-B – Quick Tips and Information for GA Aircraft (p.22)

In the March/April Jumpseat department, Flight Standards Service Director John Duncan highlights some important reasons to not procrastinate when it comes to meeting the Jan. 1, 2020 deadline for ADS-B Out, while the Angle of Attack department covers the important role ADS-B plays in helping mitigate mid-air collisions. In Nuts, Bolts, and Electrons, we look at three techniques that can help AMTs avoid errors during the set up and installation of an ADS-B Out system.

The Vertically Speaking department explains how the advent of ADS-B has helped keep helicopter operations safer and more efficient and outlines how the FAA is helping to streamline the ADS-B installation process for those in the rotorcraft community. And in our editor’s perspective department, Postflight, editor-in-chief Susan Parson provides an “ADS-B PIREP” on her DC-area flying club’s strategy for finding the optimal ADS-B solution for their Cessna 182.

Our ADS-B themed issue of FAA Safety Briefing wraps up with a profile of Aviation Safety Inspector Jim Marks, the ADS-B Focus Team lead in the FAA’s Aircraft Maintenance Division. Marks is also the driving force behind development of the ADS-B Performance Monitor, a tool that allows the agency’s Flight Standards Service to provide regulatory oversight of the rule and data to support equipage reporting and the general aviation ADS-B Out rebate program.
