FAA approves AerTrak for Boeing 737 classic series aircraft

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has announced it has issued an amendment to Supplemental Type Certificate AerSale´s AerTrak system installation on Boeing 737 Classic series aircraft, the company said.

The installation is to comply with the Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) Operations rule, a critical part of the agency´s Next Generation Air Transportation System.

Beginning January 1, 2020, the FAA has mandated that aircraft operating in airspace defined by 14 CFR § 91.225 must be equipped with an ADS-B Out system that meets the minimum performance requirements of 14 CFR § 91.227. In 2018, the FAA approved AerTrak for Boeing 737 NG series aircraft (ST04009NY) and Boeing 757-200 series aircraft (ST04011NY).

AerSale is an aftermarket provider of used commercial aircraft, engines and components, in addition to offering a broad range of MRO and engineering services for commercial and governmental aircraft and components.
