Interactive ADS-B Airspace Map
Download the Equip ADS-B Google Earth map (KMZ) to look at the location of ADS-B rule airspace at your home base and where you fly. Pan and zoom to different locations and turn on the various capabilities the map includes:
- 3-dimensional depictions of rule airspace, airports, and temporary flight restrictions in real time
- Overlays of ADS-B surveillance coverage — airspace where ATC can see aircraft transmitting ADS-B Out information at altitudes of 500′, 1,500′, 3,000′, 5,000′ and 10,000′ AGL
- Non-radar airspace where aircraft transmitting ADS-B can be seen by ATC

MROs Eye Further ADS-B Modifications Work
James Pozzi | May 02, 2018
As U.S. carriers look to meet the FAA’s fast-approaching Jan. 1, 2020 deadline to become equipped with automatic dependent surveillance-broadcast (ADS-B), MROs are exploring ways to capture some of the installation work.
Given the likelihood of a rigid equipage deadline, a surge in installations for ADS-B Out is expected.
Aircraft equipped with ADS-B Out will reap many benefits, including enabling the pilot to see surrounding aircraft and hazardous weather and terrain, which should result in safer and more efficient operations. ADS-B uses satellite signals instead of ground radar so aircraft will be able to fly more directly, as well.
