Ensure a safe landing on your next journey, knowing that you can see and be seen by those around you.

Automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) is a great tool to help improve your situational awareness the next time you take to the sky. By broadcasting real-time information on your aircraft’s identity, altitude and position it allows ATC to see you and other aircraft, helping to improve safety. ADS-B IN systems allow you to see this information on a display in your aircraft.

‘ADS-B gives me a far more accurate position fix on other traffic. I can much more easily choose what I need to do to fit my approach in safely,’ says Lyn Gray, Head of Operations, Fly Oz Flight Training School, Cowra.

Competition winners can be seen in the sky with ADS-B

Congratulations to these lucky Flight Safety Australia subscribers who each won a unit:

  1. Excellent. From my recent flying experience, pilots need dedicated ADS-B training as it applies to G airspace operations at least and radio calls in busy areas eg; CTAFs etc.
