Southeastern ADS-B NOTAM Rescinded
September 10, 2015 - Last week, EAA shared that the FAA had released a NOTAM cautioning that, due to military activity in the Southeastern U.S., ADS-B and TCAS systems could prove unreliable in the region. The wide-sweeping yet last-minute nature of the NOTAM had a clear potential to impact safety.
Recognizing the need for clarification, the FAA rescinded last week’s NOTAM and published new NOTAMs on September 5, 6, and 9 that specified locations, altitudes, timeframes, and equipment affected. The FAA may issue further NOTAMs between now and the beginning of October for similar activity.
As always, pilots are encouraged to keep apprised of NOTAMs for the areas in which they are flying and take the appropriate precautions if their ADS-B or TCAS systems are affected.
EAA will continue to monitor this situation and make further concerns known to the FAA as appropriate.
