The Federal Aviation Administration eliminates the requirement for operators to apply for an RVSM authorization when their aircraft are equipped with qualified ADS-B Out systems and meet specific altitude-keeping equipment requirements for operations in RVSM airspace.
"With robust growth in sales during the first nine months of the year, industry is on pace to produce the largest dollar amount of year-end avionics sales since the reporting process began back in 2012," said AEA President Paula Derks.
Following an extensive search process, the Aircraft Electronics Association's board of directors announced its selection of Mike Adamson as its president and chief executive officer to become effective March 25, 2019, during the 62nd annual AEA International Convention & Trade Show in Palm Springs, California.
The Aircraft Electronics Association applauds the U.S. Congress for recently approving bipartisan legislation that provides long-term stability and critical reforms to the Federal Aviation Administration. President Donald Trump is expected to sign H.R. 302 later this afternoon at the White House.
