The European Commission (EC) has made a decision to extend the deadline for ADS-B compliance by six months for business aviation operators. The deadline for ADS-B is now 7 December 2020 (with some exceptions to this date permitted), due to the impact of COVID-19 on aircraft operators. “The outbreak of the COVID-19 virus and the resulting impact on the aviation sector has led to unforeseeable obstacles for aircraft operators to pursue their activities to bring the aircraft in compliance with the ADS-B mandate,” said the EC.

ASG already has a number of aircraft booked in for ADS-B installations in the coming weeks but the extension will allow any aircraft delayed by the COVID-19 restrictions to remain compliant and still come to ASG and have the work done before the deadline. Additional relaxations mean that, in some cases, the installation can be delayed further.  Contact ASG for advice and a quote.
