Operators have 90 days from the time the reservation is made to install compliant ADS-B avionics. If not, the rebate will expire and be made available to others.

The FAA last month issued the last of 20,000 $500 rebate reservations offered to general aviation aircraft owners. Since then, returned or expired reservations are made available each Wednesday at 1 p.m. ET on a first-come, first-served basis.

FAA Publishes Air Traffic Management Procedures for NCAA Basketball Tournament https://businessaviationnews.com/faa-publishes-air-traffic-management-procedures-for-ncaa-basketball-tournament/ Thu, 15 Mar 2018 18:12:13 +0000 http://businessaviationnews.com/?p=402 The FAA has published a NOTAM outlining air traffic management plans for the area due to the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament.

Required routes for arrivals and departures will be in place on those dates and can be found in the NOTAM. If demand exceeds capacity at any time during the week, ATC traffic management initiatives are possible.

Due to potential parking constraints, it is recommended that flight operators contact their FBO of choice and provide flight schedule information prior their operation into the area.

View the NOTAM. (PDF)

Note: The NOTAM was not published in the monthly NTAP due to publication deadlines

The following airports in the San Antonio, TX area are included in the NOTAM:

  • San Antonio International Airport (SAT)
  • Stinson Municipal Airport (SSF)
  • Kelly Field Airport (SKF)
  • New Braunfels Regional Airport (BAZ)

Shuster drops push to privatize air traffic control https://businessaviationnews.com/shuster-drops-push-to-privatize-air-traffic-control/ Sat, 03 Mar 2018 13:10:22 +0000 http://businessaviationnews.com/?p=376

House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-Pa.) is dropping his effort to separate air traffic control from the federal government.

“Despite an unprecedented level of support for this legislation – from bipartisan lawmakers, industry, and conservative groups and labor groups alike – some of my own colleagues refused to support shrinking the federal government by 35,000 employees, cutting taxes, and stopping wasteful spending,” Shuster wrote in a statement.

NATA Statement on Trump Administration FY2019 Budget Blueprint https://businessaviationnews.com/nata-statement-on-trump-administration-fy2019-budget-blueprint/ Tue, 13 Feb 2018 11:07:46 +0000 http://businessaviationnews.com/?p=292 Budget Request Calls for Exploration of Corporatizing Air Traffic Control

Today, the Trump Administration released a budget blueprint for Fiscal Year 2019, providing high level detail about the Administration’s proposals related to federal discretionary funding. The budget proposal calls for investment into rural America, but also includes language outlining support for creating an air traffic control corporation – an idea that has been met with the collective resistance of NATA and hundreds of other leading general aviation organizations.

The following is a statement by National Air Transportation Association President Martin H. Hiller:

“Despite strong bipartisan opposition to the corporatization of our nation’s air traffic control system, the 2019 budget blueprint contains language shifting the air traffic control function away from the FAA to a corporation. NATA will continue to fight this existential threat to general aviation and the businesses that support this vital community – supporting more than one million jobs nationwide. The association will work with the Administration and Congress toward a more efficient FAA, with a priority on educating them about the risks posed by handing over our nation’s air traffic control system to special interests.”

Air Traffic Control Enters the 21st Century https://businessaviationnews.com/air-traffic-control-enters-the-21st-century/ Sat, 10 Feb 2018 15:51:45 +0000 http://businessaviationnews.com/?p=279 NextGen looks to overhaul navigation and communication in U.S. airspace. Data Comm is just one component in a vast and ambitious program, called NextGen (short for Next Generation Air Transportation), in which the Federal Aviation Administration is overhauling the way aircraft navigate and the way controllers track and communicate with them. Satellite navigation can allow aircraft to fly smooth, efficient point-to-point routes rather than zigzagging between ground-based navigation beacons and stair-stepping to change altitudes. Satellite-based surveillance, meanwhile, can give air traffic controllers—and other pilots—more accurate and timely location information than radar can, allowing aircraft to fly closer together.
