ADS-B is required when operating over the U.S. as of January 1, 2020. However, aircraft without the necessary ADS-B capabilities can still operate in U.S. airspace with a single-use route deviation authorization obtained through the FAA’s ADS-B Deviation Authorization Pre-Flight Tool (ADAPT).
Our regulatory experts working in conjunction with our flight planners manage the whole process and make it safe, fast, and easy for you.
To get started, contact your Universal® Account Manager, or Universal® Global Regulatory Services:

Our global regulatory experts explain how ADS-B ADAPT exemptions can work for you.
Some of the highly anticipated 2020 ADS-B mandates are now in effect. Others have been delayed, and additional new mandates are on the horizon for later in 2020 and 2021. If you fly internationally, it is becoming increasingly more difficult to get around the globe without ADS-B. This post is an overview of what ADS-B is, which countries already require ADS-B and those who have upcoming mandates.
Several aircraft equipment regulatory changes have recently and will soon go into effect. These changes will impact operations over the United States, North Atlantic, and Europe. This post contains a list of the changes and their corresponding equipment code filing requirements are included.
