Gulfstream offers ADS-B out for G150 Aircraft

“We are glad to announce that this enhancement will be available to G150 operators in January,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream Product Support. “ADS-B Out is an important part of the solution to meet the demands of air traffic growth in the coming years. It will help ensure customers meet current and future aviation mandates and help improve the efficiency of air traffic control systems.”


ADS-B Out will supplement and/or replace ground-based radar systems. Using ground-based transceivers, an ADS-B Out system generates aircraft position information with greater accuracy and reliability. Benefits for operators and air traffic control include:

Improved position accuracy for air traffic control for all flight segments: surface, terminal area and en-route operations

-Closely spaced parallel approaches
--Reduced spacing on final approach
Improved air traffic control services in non-radar airspace

ADS-B Out installation for the G150 will include replacement of the aircraft’s existing transponders with DO-260B-compliant units, which will be required for U.S. and European airspace, and the installation of a universal access transceiver and three antennas. The new equipment is manufactured by Garmin International of Olathe, Kansas.

Initial installations of ADS-B Out on G150s will be done at Gulfstream’s Dallas facility. ADS-B Out is available for all other in-production Gulfstream aircraft — G650, G550, G450, G280 — and several out-of-production aircraft — GV, GIV, GIV-SP, G400. It will be available for the G200 in 2015. For more information, contact a Gulfstream Product Support regional sales manager.
