Where are the current ADS-B Out equipage levels for general aviation?

As of July 1, 2019, the equipage level for U.S. fixed wing GA aircraft stood at 64,959. Of those installs, 4,375 were recorded as having non-performing emitters or NPEs.

For more information on NPEs and how you can run a free, online test of your ADS-B system to make sure that it’s transmitting correctly, see the article “Is My ADS-B Broadcasting Me?” in the January/February 2019 issue of FAA Safety Briefing here:

Will there be a change to the Jan 1, 2020 ADS-B Out deadline?

No, the FAA is not changing the deadline. After January 1, 2020, aircraft flying in airspace where transponders are currently required will be required to have ADS-B Out installed.

That means you now have less than 6 months remaining to get equipped. Repair shops may soon reach their capacity limits for the year, so please plan accordingly.
