This week’s Sun ’n’ Fun Fly-In and Expo at Lakeland, Fla., will serve as a proof-of-concept test site for the synthetic air traffic advisory system. The new system on display in the Lakeland terminal uses off-the-shelf technology to provide pilots at non-tower airports with transponder-based traffic advisories. AIN will be covering Sun ’n’ Fun beginning tomorrow and will be publishing news online and in newsletters on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
