A new survey is seeking information from certificated pilots—especially in general aviation—who operate in the U.S. National Airspace System (NAS). The transition from ground-based air traffic control to satellite-based air traffic management using GPS accuracy using Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast presents a number of opportunities and choices. The survey is asking pilots to identify their preferences; their responses will help guide efforts to design and manufacture certified avionics that they would like to see in NextGen. One randomly chosen survey taker will win a $50 Visa gift card.
