The FAA chose FreeFlight Systems to provide ADS-B avionics upgrades for up to 600 aircraft that helped the agency with development of ADS-B as part of the Capstone Program in Alaska and several other states in the U.S. The contract is worth up to $7,017,094. FreeFlight will be installing the Rangr FDL-978-XVR in partnership with an avionics shop in Alaska. The Capstone participants had installed first-generation ADS-B equipment, funded by the FAA in exchange for pilot feedback. The FAA committed to upgrading that equipment, and the result is the contract award to FreeFlight Systems.
