Transponder ADS-B

Post by rwaldeck » Mon Jan 21, 2019 6:41 pm

Hi
I’ll be moving my Gyroplane to Virginia Airport and need to fit a Transponder.
Transponders are expensive and I only want to do/fit it once.
With the forthcoming requirements (in 2020?) for ADS-B (enhanced Mode S with the 1090ES modification) capability,
which Make & models should I look at and where to buy ? Plse advise,

Transponder ADS B

Nope -- just that it may not provide all the information required for ADS-B out. I didnt ask specifically about the G300 but did with the G3X and Garmin support was pretty specific that only their certified units provided the information to be 2020 compliant. From the G3X literature:
It’s impossible to know what GPS sensors will become available in the future to provide the necessary data to satisfy the ADS-B requirements, but the “ES” capability of the GTX 23 transponder does qualify for the rules the FAA has already published.
