[FONT=&quot]The Vertically Speaking department explains how the advent of ADS-B has helped keep helicopter operations safer and more efficient and outlines how the FAA is helping to streamline the ADS-B installation process for those in the rotorcraft community. And in our editor’s perspective department, Postflight, editor-in-chief Susan Parson provides an “ADS-B PIREP” on her DC-area flying club’s strategy for finding the optimal ADS-B solution for their Cessna 182.[/FONT]

Marks is also the driving force behind development of the ADS-B Performance Monitor, a tool that allows the agency’s Flight Standards Service to provide regulatory oversight of the rule and data to support equipage reporting and the general aviation ADS-B Out rebate program.[/FONT]
