"ADS-B is the way forward - that's undeniable," said Mark Baker, President of AOPA. "And it can only be truly effective with full participation from all types of aircraft."
Industry support for ADS-B continues to grow. Lower-cost options that are now available on the market allow the safety and benefits provided by ADS-B to become a reality - and not just referring to the weather and traffics "benefits." FIS-B and TIS-B tend to get a lot of the attention when talking about the perks of ADS-B, but there's so much more than that.

In "The Five Stages of ADS-B" blog published by FreeFlight last October, the "DABDA" process was applied to the adoption of ADS-B. A lot of progress has been made in the five months since that post, and the "Acceptance" stage is now in sight -- ?
