AEA To Again Award Cash Prizes For ADS-B Out Installation At AirVenture

Five Aircraft Owners Will Receive $1,000 Towards Installation

To help incentivize owners of general aviation aircraft to meet the Federal Aviation Administration's ADS-B Out equipage mandate in the United States, the Aircraft Electronics Association will randomly award five aircraft owners with $1,000 each toward an ADS-B compliant upgrade during the Experimental Aircraft Association's AirVenture Oshkosh, July 23-29, in Wisconsin.

This year marks the fifth-consecutive year that the AEA has made the $1,000 award available to five aircraft owners, meaning that a total of $25,000 has been awarded during the last five years.

"The repair shop industry in the U.S. has less than 18 months to equip the general aviation fleet of more than 100,000 aircraft with ADS-B Out avionics," said AEA President Paula Derks. "Aircraft owners who wait to equip will face scheduling pressure and likely higher installation costs as we get closer to the Jan. 1, 2020, deadline. By awarding $1,000 to five different aircraft owners to help them become compliant as quickly as possible, the AEA hopes to send a message to owners of general aviation aircraft that the time to act and upgrade is now."

Aircraft owners may enter to win one of the five $1,000 awards in Hangar B at Wittman Regional Airport, booth No. 2035/2036, beginning July 23. The AEA will announce one winner each day from July 23 through July 27 via its social media outlets on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Aircraft owners must be at least 18 years old to register to win. Each of the five winners must use an AEA-member avionics repair station to complete the installation, and the installation must be scheduled by Aug. 1, 2019. One entry gives aircraft owners a chance to win each of the five daily drawings.
