Privacy of business aviation operations is vital to protecting the personal security of passengers and the industrial security for companies.

As technology has evolved to allow the real-time tracking and sharing of flight data – first with the FAA’s Aircraft Situational Display to Industry (ASDI) program and later with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) equipment – NBAA worked closely with the FAA to develop opt-out options to limit the distribution of aircraft data and flight information over the internet.

For the maximum level of privacy, operators should participate in both the Limiting Aircraft Data Displayed (LADD) and Privacy ICAO Address (PIA) programs.
