There is really nothing else like it available to the general public. We estimate that the site will save the average aircraft owner a significant amount of money and time on the purchase and installation of their ADS-B systems.
Wichita, Kansas (PRWEB) August 25, 2016
In 2010, the FAA announced that aircraft operating in certain airspace including Classes A, B, C, around busy airports, and above 10,000 feet are required to have an ADS-B system effective January 1, 2020. The end of the ten-year period is rapidly drawing to a close.
Unfortunately, approximately 80% of GA aircraft owners have delayed the purchase and installation of their ADS-B transponder or transceiver until the final few years before the mandate takes effect, setting the stage for dramatic shortages of available installation slots and substantial price increases.
The Equip ADS-B Marketplace is an innovative new website designed to help connect aircraft owners with qualified avionics shops that have FAA-approved ADS-B systems for their aircraft type. The site launches for the general public on September 6, 2016 – 40 months prior to the deadline – and features a number of benefits for both user groups.
The Equip ADS-B Marketplace features a user-friendly Request for Quote (RFQ) framework coupled with a competitive bidding platform tailored for ADS-B installations. These applications streamline the quoting and bidding process for aircraft owners and enable them to schedule service at competitive prices. Aircraft owners are also able to access one of the largest libraries of content related to ADS-B installations available anywhere online, dramatically speeding up their research, and helping them to easily determine the optimal ADS-B solution for their needs and budget.
Avionics shops are able to use the Equip ADS-B Marketplace to connect with clients and bid on projects all across the nation, giving them the opportunity to increase their revenue dramatically. The site also provides them with strategic advice on successfully marketing themselves to prospective clients, a variety of material for use by their sales teams, and an effective way to build a reputation for excellence they can leverage for years into the future.
“There is really nothing else like it available to the general public,” said Brandon Tvedt, a representative of the Marketplace. “We estimate that the site will save the average aircraft owner a significant amount of money on the purchase and installation of their ADS-B system due to the nationwide competitive bidding platform, as well as dozens of hours of research time,” he further explained. “Best of all, using the site is completely free for aircraft owners. Avionics shops pay a small fee on a per-project basis, but only when business is actually contracted – never anything upfront” he concluded.
The Equip ADS-B Marketplace is an innovative new website designed to help connect aircraft owners with qualified avionics providers in order to facilitate compliance with the FAA’s ADS-B Out mandate by January 1, 2020. The site provides a number of unique benefits to both aircraft owners and avionics shops. It features a user-friendly Request for Quote (RFQ) framework coupled with a competitive bidding platform tailored for ADS-B installations and one of the largest libraries of ADS-B content available online.
