Ground Stations Up And Running At Four PA Airports
The Aircraft Owners and Pilots
Association tells ANN the network of ADS-B ground stations
continues to expand across the nation, with most of the eastern
part of Pennsylvania now covered.
The Pennsylvania Bureau of Aviation is the latest agency to
partner with the FAA to speed the installation of automatic
dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B) ground stations.
ADS-B ground stations are now up and running at Lancaster, Queen
City (Allentown), Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, and University Park (State
College) airports. That means ADS-B weather graphics and traffic
information are now available along the eastern seaboard from New
Jersey to Florida, as well as in portions of Ohio, central
Tennessee, Wisconsin, North Dakota, and central Arizona.
AOPA first demonstrated ADS-B to Pennsylvania officials in 2004.
They recognized the value of the system to pilots and opted to help
fund the early installation in their state while ADS-B was still in
a demonstration mode.
The FAA has now committed to ADS-B nationwide, to supplement and
ultimately replace the radar and transponder system for air traffic
surveillance and control.
