Incentive Requirements Status report to validate your
equipment is working properly.
Review and validate the aircraft owner and aircraftspecific information in the FAA's Civil Aircraft Registry.
The FAA will determine rebate program eligibility using
the information submitted in the CAR, and all rebates
will be mailed to the aircraft owner recorded in the CAR.
Reserve your rebate. Before installation, an owner
must submit a Rebate Reservation on the ADS-B Rebate
website to obtain a rebate reservation code. Ownership
information and aircraft eligibility will be checked
against the Civil Aircraft Registry during this step.
Helpful Hint: Research where rule airspace is near you to
ensure you are flying a full 30 minutes within that airspace
after your installation. The most common reason for a report
failure is that pilots are not flying in rule airspace.
