2021 Summer Aviation Safety Series

Safety is a top priority for pilots, passengers, and industry stakeholders. But how does FAA work to make aviation safer? Join us for a series of virtual safety forums led by FAA experts to learn about critical safety issues in the nation's airspace. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in live Q&A sessions.

The events will be livestreamed on FAA's YouTube channel — no registration is required.

How to Check Your ADS-B Performance

Date/time: August 3, 2 p.m. ET
Presenters: Jamal Wilson, Jim Kenney, Jimmy Wright, Jane Lopez, Ty Prettyman

In this session, FAA experts will demonstrate how to check that your Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Out equipment is working properly and meeting rule performance requirements.

ADS-B — Call Sign Mismatch

Presenters: Jim Kenney, Jamal Wilson, Jimmy Wright, Jane Lopez, Ty Prettyman

It is important to understand why the ADS-B Flight ID must exactly match the aircraft ID entered on a flight plan or used during ATC communications.
