Got my $500 check today .
**** just got real.
How long did it take?
Sounds like it’s time to celebrate
I flew my test flight on January 18th. This was during the gov shut down. I received my confirmation email just a week ago telling me the rebate would arrive in 4 to 6 weeks. Mine arrived this afternoon and a friend also got his today. I was surprised to say the least !
Interesting. I've been wondering how many rebates are left, the counter on the website hasn't updated since December 20th, but it looks like they are still dishing them out.
I hope mines that quick! I did mine at a similar time to you. I e-mailed them asking for status and they told me 10-12 weeks . Though the confirmation email that then got sent after I asked said 4-6 weeks. We'll see.
My check arrived yesterday

I'm curious how the ground portion of the ADSB flight test works to get the rebate. I understand that the FAA wants to see that the ADSB transmitter can tell the difference between flight and ground operations but how does the get the data? If I'm operating out of a semi-rural airport where there's no line of site to an ADSB ground station until I'm at 200 AGL or so, is my ADSB-out being rebroadcast to the ground stations by overflying aircraft?
There seems to be a lot of confusion regarding the ADS-B flight test . I read several accounts of other pilot’s attempts before I did mine. I passed on the first attempt. I flew to KGSO at 5500 feet, which is 500 feet above class C airspace around KGSO. I called approach and requested to fly directly above the class C airspace for my proving flight. You are required to fly a minimum of 30 minutes..I flew 48 minutes. You are required to make 2 360 degree right and left turns, standard rate not to exceed 30 degrees. Climbs and descents at least one minute in duration and cross a known fix from north to south and east to west. I crossed the GSO VOR . If you live in a remote area, you can climb above 10000 feet and maneuver and achieve the same results. FYI, you are not required to fly to an airport with ADS-B towers. The original AC did require this...but they changed the requirements. You need to fly your test flight in what will become the new 91.225 airspace in 2020.
Got my check today! Just in time for annual!
