If you fly in controlled airspace, this proposal will apply to you.
As part of the New Southern Sky (NSS) programme, Airways is moving to Automatic Dependent Surveillance - Broadcast (ADS-B). The current secondary radar service will be replaced by ADS-B as the main source of surveillance information for separation of aircraft in controlled airspace.
The CAA proposed rule change would make ADS-B mandatory for all aircraft in controlled airspace below Flight Level 245 from 31 Dec 2021.
ADS-B policy discussion document (PDF 586 KB) - submissions closed 05 Apr 2019.
Submissions have closed on the ADS-B consultation. We will now consider the submissions and provide a summary of this information to the Minister of Transport. A final policy decision on the proposed 2021 ADS-B Mandate is likely to be made by Cabinet by mid-2019.
For more information on what is required to comply with the proposed mandate see the New Southern Sky website.
