BAE Systems Regional Aircraft has completed the engineering and installation of an ADS-B (Out) modification on two Avro RJ aircraft, leading to the awarding of EASA Approval Certificate 10066079 for this major change modification. On the back of this approval, CityJet has placed an order for modification kits covering its 13-strong fleet.

Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) is a surveillance technology in which an aircraft determines its position via satellite navigation and periodically broadcasts it, enabling it to be tracked without the need for any action from the pilot or from Air Traffic Control and providing an enhanced set of aircraft surveillance data to Air Traffic Management. EASA has mandated that all aircraft weighing above 5,700kg or having a maximum cruise speed greater than 250 knots will need to be ADS-B compliant by June 7, 2020.
