ADS-B is only the beginning. In the next few years, the FAA NextGen plan to upgrade the U.S. airways system will require a veritable alphabet soup of navigational equipment upgrades, from WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) to FANS (Future Air Navigation System). In “WAAS Up Next, FANS?” Aaron Hilkemann explains in plain English just what these improvements mean for your operational safety and efficiency.
The future holds more than an improved airways system – it may offer better, faster, and more cost effective ways to get from office to airport, via a shared helicopter. Scott Ashton brings you up-to-date on that option in “Accessing the e-VTOL Network.”
You’ll find this and more in the July/August 2017 issue of Business Aviation Advisor.
