[Avionics Today 02-27-2015] Garmin has announced the helicopter-specific GDL 84H and GDL 88H Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) data link solution. The systems meet equipage requirements for ADS-B Out and can additionally receive ADS-B In traffic and weather on a mobile device or compatible cockpit display.

“We have leveraged our expertise in the helicopter industry to develop these optimized solutions that offer immediate benefits for helicopter operators today, while allowing them to meet the requirements of ADS-B Out by Dec. 31, 2019,” said Carl Wolf, vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “The universal adoption of ADS-B promises to bring widespread access to traffic and weather information that was previously out of reach for many helicopter operators.”
