    It *must* be a joke.
    No way they would extend by 20 years.

    April 1, plus the graphic shows intercepting missiles from the USSR... Probably from the 1980's SDI (star wars) program

    FAASafety.gov --------------------------------------------------------

    No Kidding: ADS-B Deadline of Jan. 1, 2020, is Firm
    Notice Number: NOTC7704

    No Kidding: ADS-B Deadline of Jan. 1, 2020, is Firm
    We have a sense of humor, too, but an April Fool’s joke that the Federal Aviation Administration is extending the ADS-B deadline is just that.
    As stated in the final rule published with industry input in May 2010, all aircraft flying in designated controlled airspace – generally the same busy airspace where transponders are currently required – must be equipped with ADS-B Out avionics by Jan. 1, 2020. Only aircraft that fly in uncontrolled airspace, and aircraft without electrical systems, such as balloons and gliders, are exempt from the mandate.
    Those who have already equipped understand that ADS-B is transforming the nation’s airspace by providing more precision and reliability than the current radar system, enhancing safety and increasing situational awareness.
    Time is running out. There are only 21 months left until the deadline. If you have any questions about equipage – whether you need to or not, what equipment to get, etc. – please see the FAA’s Equip ADS-B website. For information about the transformational technology, visit the ADS-B website.
    Please do not reply to this message.

    When anything is labeled "Mandate" from the U.S. Gov. I automatically become a malcontent.

    Yeah, but "ADS-B Suggestion" just doesn't have the same ring to it.
