Kolbers,

There is one good reason to consider ADSB out….The flat panel cockpit! I am probably a little paranoid, but with a lot of pilots retrofitting their cockpit with flat screen technology, which all the new planes now have, and the next generation of pilots have been raised with a flat screen, of some type, in front of their face…. Once airborne, I want my little plane to show up on their screen, if but chance they are distracted from looking OUT of the cockpit….

For what it’s worth,

Good point if you fly in an area where there are those kinds of planes.
I fly in a remote area. Our airport sees maybe one airplane every two weeks that has a flat panel. I saw a flat panel on a airplane once, one I rented ten years ago and I looked outside. When I took my plane to Florida one winter I was based at an airport with alot of jet traffic and no tower. If I'm ever based at a similar airport again I would get ADSB -IN/OUT and the biggest double/triple+ flash strobes I can find. I could see my Kolb like a bug on one those windshields.

I live in the Houston area, so ADS-B in and out is simply a good safety option to have, here.  I self-installed (in my non-Kolb experimental) a uAvionix echoUAT (both in and out) and managed to get it done in just a few hours.  Granted, I already had a Mode C xponder, so that made it a lot easier.  So far it's worked quite well and I am (and esp. my wife is) glad to have the additional information and level of safety.

All good points, but I refuse the cost of adding very expensive equipment that I do not need.

My one concession to the ADS-B crowd is that I will keep my transponder turned ON, so that the fools with their heads down will likely see me on their screen.

Also, I resent the STEALING of airspace from general aviation pilots who choose not to equip. I can possibly understand the prohibition over class C airspace or on top of class B; but stealing the area outside of Class B to 30 miles is inexcusable.
