"What is Australia Waiting For?"

A message from AEA South Pacific Regulatory Consultant Bruce Baxter

Bruce BaxterFebruary 2017 is the deadline for the ADS-B mandate requiring all general aviation aircraft operating in instrument flight rules in Australia to be fitted with GNSS-based ADS-B equipment. According to Bruce Baxter, the AEA's South Pacific regulatory consultant, this is the opportunity Australia has waited for, yet it's not taking advantage of it.
To better understand how shops can work with their customers, Baxter conducted an extensive interview with Andrew Andersen, president of AOPA Australia and IAOPA vice president for the Pacific region, and spoke with him about ADS-B and the AOPA members' understanding of the issues faced.
The article, titled "What is Australia Waiting For?" was published in the May issue of Avionics News magazine, and a similar article was published in the April issue of Australian Pilot magazine.
