Avionics for NextGen Conference Slated for Sept. 17 in Atlantic City

The third annual Avionics for NextGen Conference will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 17, at the Sheraton Hotel in Atlantic City, N.J.

Produced by Avionics magazine, the event will bring together hundreds of aviation professionals from commercial, business/general aviation and government markets responsible for driving the future of NextGen to discuss their experiences, challenges and solutions with the implementation of these technologies.

The Avionics for NextGen Conference will address tough issues and questions, such as:

  • How are airlines preparing for the looming ADS-B mandate, and how does NextGen look from the cockpit of airliners?
  • What financial concerns do private operators face as they equip their aircrafts?
  • What are the latest updates in the field from the airlines and airports who have already put components of NextGen technology into play?
  • How are operators, regulators and suppliers ensuring that air-traffic modernization efforts are synchronized globally?
  • Will there be sufficient certified installers for the ADS-B mandate, and will the Federal Aviation Administration be able to handle anticipated and significant requests from manufacturers for box certification? Will all the aircraft be equipped in time?

In addition, Ric Peri, AEA vice president of government and industry affairs, will moderate the panel discussion, “The Equipage Cliff: What does 2020 Look Like?”
