Pilots are being asked to participate in a study designed to make the symbols used to display ADS-B traffic information easier to understand.
Participants will be asked to try to interpret and learn the meanings of several symbols proposed for displaying traffic information in the cockpit. Study findings will be used by the FAA and avionics manufacturers to improve safety.
The study is being conducted by the U.S. Department of Transportation Volpe Center and the MITRE Center for Advanced Aviation System Development. For more information or to participate, visit the study Web site.
MVP Aero is developing a $189,000 light sport amphibious seaplane that doubles as a camper and is expected to fly in 18 months, with deliveries in 2017.
The FAA will miss a deadline to reform aircraft certification by two years, the agency told the House Aviation Subcommittee during a July 23 hearing.
AOPA is testing whether aircraft ownership can be more affordable than many people believe with the development of “Reimagined Aircraft.”
