[Avionics Today 09-09-2016] ATP Flight School has selected L-3 Aviation’s Lynx NGT-9000 as the Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) solution for 100 of the school’s 250-plus training aircraft, with the option for additional units as the fleet expands. L-3’s Lynx NGT-9000 is an ADS-B touchscreen transponder and offers a software suite of NextGen situational awareness features, including traffic and weather data.

The ATP fleet consists of Piper and Cessna twin- and single-engine aircraft, which will be equipped with the Lynx NGT-9000 plus options, including L-3’s ADS-B Traffic Advisory System (ATAS) with aural alerting and its Class B embedded Terrain Awareness Warning System (eTAWS). The installation of the NGT-9000 in ATP’s fleet will provide students in the flight school with the ADS-B technology. Deliveries of the Lynx units will continue through the end of 2016, ahead of the 2020 ADS-B mandate.
