CASA responds to AEA concerns over ADS-B mandate

The AEA recently issued a letter to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority that expressed concerns from Australian AEA members regarding rumours of a potential extension of the ADS-B mandate. 

While some issues may be no more than rumours, we are all aware of how rumours can sometimes turn into fact due to complacency. The letter from the AEA asked the CASA for a response to these rumours.

In short, the CASA response to these concerns reconfirmed the fact that the CASA has no plans to extend the ADS-B mandate. To read the official CASA response to the AEA authored by Carolyn Hutton, branch manager, click here.
