To help you get an ADS-B System installed with less hassle & less money
Thousands of pilots and aircraft owners depend on Equip ADS-B Marketplace to help them find the right avionics repair station to install an ADS-B system in their aircraft before the 2020 mandate. Like Paul Revere we’ve have been alerting aircraft owners since 2013 “the ADS-B mandate is coming, the ADS-B mandate is coming!” The need to equip is now or risk being denied access to airports and airspace starting January 1, 2020.
We’re the only online platform dedicated to connecting aircraft owners with qualified avionics shops who are available and interested in your aircraft. We help the little guy reduce high avionics installation costs by providing innovative tools and a transparent marketplace. We empower our clients to soar as shops compete on price and services.
Whether you own an aircraft or manage a private fleet, you can rely on us to save you time and money so you can focus on what you do best. We’re Equip ADS-B Marketplace, and we look forward to earning your business.
Stephen Smothers: Founder Equip ADS-B Marketplace
My name is Stephen Smothers, and I am the founder of Equip ADS-B Marketplace. I’ve been a pilot for over 38 years, and in business aviation for 12 years. I like to help people go where they want to go. I started this website two years ago to help fellow pilots and flight departments find and select the Repair Station that best fits your overall objectives and get an upgrade to ADS-B.
We have come a long way since our inception – from building a self-service bidding platform to offering full-service client-to-business matching. We help you find FAA-approved ADS-B solutions & installation shops tailored to your operation and most importantly your budget.
I’m proud of the work we are doing. Every day, I get to see new clients throughout the U.S. making connections with local shops and facilitating more aircraft equip with ADS-B. I’m passionate about aviation safety and integrating technology that improves airspace and airport efficiency.
Don’t get left behind — equip now to join the air transportation system of the 21st Century. I look forward to sharing our mission with you:
Equip ADS-B. Less Hassle. Less Money. Equip Now!
