AMNGROUP will moderate the Panel on future Aviation Mandates

Key transformational programs are on their way modernizing aviation to the next frontier in terms of Communication, Navigation, Surveillance, Information Management Avionics, RPAS integration,

Coordinated effort lead by ICAO ASBU through its Global Air Navigation Plan (GANP) and FAA trough its Next Generation Air Transportation System (NEXTGEN) with the NGIP and EU/SESAR master Plan is changing aviation to the benefit of its users and making it more sustainable

The Panel will discuss the keys mandates and how they impact curent fleets and ATM infrastructure in the 2020 aviation context: ADS-B Out, FANS 1/A+, CVR as detailed here below.

Modification and Design for Aircraft – Future Mandates

Actually, we have to consider the modification of aging aircraft to meet the international aerospace mandates smplfying HMI and making aircraft flying safer for the future.

Here below some of the most important mandates that are required from the start of 2020:

  • ADS-B Out – 01 Jan 2020 (US) the ADS-B Out requirement in Europe has been postponed from June 7, 2020 to Dec. 7, 2020 for aircraft receiving their certificate of airworthiness (C or A) on or after December 7.

Aircraft that require a Mode-S transponder today will need functioning on Version 2 of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast Out (ADS-B Out), a precise satellite-based surveillance system.

GPS to determine an aircraft’s location, airspeed, and other data. It enhances safety by making an aircraft visible, in real time, to air traffic control and to other appropriately equipped ADS-B aircraft, with position and velocity data transmitted every second.

  • Data Comm Systems with FANS 1/A+, CPDLC DCL, and ATN B1 – 01 Jan 2020

Data Comm is a term that is applicable to a growing set of data communication elements and systems, which may be neatly integrated into a single system for flight crew consstency.


Cockpit voice recorders with a recording duration of at least 25 hours will be required on commercial airplanes with a maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) of 60,000 pounds or more manufactured from Jan 1, 2021.
