With the ADS-B compliance deadline about a month away, what do business aircraft operators need to know about protecting their privacy? The FAA has developed a plan to allow a real-time flight-tracking opt-out for operators, and also announced plans to establish new terms-of-service agreements with aircraft tracking service providers that will limit the sharing of aircraft data, if operators want to opt out from having their flight information broadcast over the Internet. NBAA has worked for years with the agency and other stakeholders to get such systems into place before the Jan. 1, 2020, deadline.
In this episode of NBAA Flight Plan, host Rob Finfrock speaks with:
Doug Carr, NBAA vice president of regulatory and international affairs
Heidi Williams, NBAA director of air traffic services and infrastructure
Bill Riter, aviation department manager
Greg Hamelink, chief of maintenance
NBAA Flight Plan is sponsored by Schedaero, the software that elevates your flight operations.
Throughout February, NBAA has marked Black History Month by recognizing the significant aviation contributions of African Americans and emphasizing the importance of ensuring our industry is open and welcoming to people from all backgrounds.
The FAA has been working with NBAA and others to address privacy concerns with the Privacy ICAO Address program (PIA), which recently was expanded beyond the contiguous U.S. to include overwater routes.
Flight data monitoring and data sharing are important tools to help identify potential safety risks before they become serious issues. That said, many operators are uncertain about how they work, what equipment is needed and what this information can offer their operations. NBAA has developed a new, comprehensive resource to answer those and other questions.
In this special edition of NBAA Flight Plan, podcast host Rob Finfrock gets a few moments in between conference sessions with NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen to discuss the latest efforts by the association to highlight business aviation's societal benefits.
