An Appareo Stratus ESG transponder, Stratus 3i, and GPS antenna was installed in N5655G! We are now in compliance with the FAA mandate for all aircraft (operating in designated airspace) to comply with ADS-B. The required equipment enables your aircraft to be seen on radar, showing your type, registration, altitude, speed…. and (0ptional) to receive in your cockpit live “traffic alerts” of other airplanes flying nearby. To receive the alerts, you need to have a capable display which shows your position (map) and the surrounding aircraft (targets). We are using an Ipad with Foreflight, and this is an excellent tool, as it also does flight planning, weather alerts, airport diagrams, airspace, and logbook recording. You can also record your flight, and replay it in Google Earth for example. The radio capabilities, moving map/GPS, and navigation available today greatly enhance flying safety!
