The GA World Needs All The Help It Can Get... IF It Can Get It A hot topic at EAA AirVenture 2014 was the subject of the FAA requirement to be ADS-B equipped by January 1, 2020.

Campbell talks with Michael Dyment, the Founder and Managing Partner of NEXA Capital Partners, LLC. Dyment points out that while there is still 5 1/2 years until the time ADS-B is mandated, there are approximately 157,000 GA aircraft to be equipped.
