The voice of the general aviation aircraft electronics industry.
Founded in 1957, the Aircraft Electronics Association represents nearly 1,300 member companies in more than 40 countries, including government-certified international repair stations specializing in maintenance, repair and installation of avionics and electronic systems in general aviation aircraft.
In an effort to promote consistency and standardization, the AEA petitioned the FAA for acceptance of the ASTM standard as an acceptable means of compliance. As an FAA-recognized AMC, this document is essentially the same as if it was published as an advisory circular.
On April 1, 2019, the Federal Aviation Administration published its policy for authorizations to operators of aircraft that are not equipped with Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out equipment.
On March 12, 2019, the Aircraft Electronics Association sent a letter to Nicholas Robinson, Director General of Transport Canada, Civil Aviation, in regards to Nav Canada's proposal for ADS-B requirements in Canadian Airspace.
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.
