The Notice of Requirement NTC 91.258 (the Notice) relating to Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) systems was first issued on 20 July 2018. The Notice brought into full effect the ADS-B civil aviation rules for flight level above 245 within transponder mandatory controlled airspace.
The purpose of the Notice is to specify the requirements determined by the Director referred to in rule 91.258, regarding equipage of aircraft with ADS-B systems, the performance standards of those systems, the minimum message set elements, and the testing and power output, amongst other matters.
The proposed amendments to the Notice are for the following reasons -
(1) to reflect that ADS-B will be mandated below flight level 245;
(2) to clarify what the power requirements are; and
(3) to allow position sources for ADS-B which are suitable for that purpose but did not meet (or were equivalent to) listed GPS TSO’s.
In addition, some editorial corrections are also proposed to correct certain inconsistencies between section 2 and tables 1 and 2 of the Notice.
