July 2015 Meeting: ADS-B What It Is and Why You Need It! with Art Vartanian of Peninsula Avionics
Written by Mike Brogley   
Saturday, 13 June 2015

Join us for the July monthly gathering of the South County Airport Pilots Association on Tuesday, July 14th 2015. We gather at 5:30 pm, will be serving dinner at 6:00 pm ($15 members, $20 non-members, Guests Welcome!), hold a brief business meeting at 6:45 pm, and our speaker presentation kicks off at 7:00pm. Our topic this month is:

Automatic Dependent Surveillance–Broadcast with Art Vartanian of Peninsula Avionics

Automatic Dependent Surveillance–Broadcast (ADS–B) is a cooperative surveillance technology in which an aircraft determines its position via satellite navigation (GPS) and periodically broadcasts that position information, enabling tracking by air traffic control ground stations as a replacement for secondary radar. This position broadcast can also be received by other aircraft to provide situational awareness and allow self-separation. The ADB-B system also provides uplink data, and if you are properly equipped you can receive ground-based traffic and weather information, including weather radar images. But all the variations in equipment can be confusing - what do you need to install to take advantage of the full system, and how much will it cost? And with the 2020 deadline, what will you need to stay legal?

Update: The FAA has approved this talk for Wings Credit!

Aviation Weather in the Bay Area with Ashley Helmetag of the NWS Oakland Center Weather Service Unit

Weather is a constant challenge for VFR and IFR pilots, often causing schedule or route changes, passenger discomfort and potentially serious safety hazards.  Ashley Helmetag from the NWS Oakland Center Weather Service Unit joins us this month to discuss types of weather common in our area, their causes and seasonality, how to best forecast weather from official weather sources and how to predict weather. Join us to learn how PIREPS directly relate to (and sometimes aid) official weather forecasts and advisories.
