FAA Issues Reminder on GA ADS-B Rebate Rules

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) wants to remind general aviation operators taking advantage of the agency’s Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) rebate program that rebate reservations must be made within 90 days of the installation of the appropriate equipment.

If the 90 days passes without a reservation being made, the rebate expires and will 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. Eastern Time on a first-come, first-served basis.
