I am working on a graduate capstone project for Embry-Riddle
Aeronautical University. I need to collect some survey responses from
current or future airplane owners. THAT IS YOU!
This directly relates to General Aviation and the Next Generation of
Airspace in the United States. Please help my research out. Any builder
in any phase of building or ownership can participate:

I filled out the survey for your Christopher and hope many others do too. Good luck.

I took the survey and answered the questions as best I could. The implications of some of the questions were somewhat alarming, which may skew the survey results, I'm afraid. I did learn something from the survey however.
Not sure about EAA, but AOPA has taken a position on ADS-B implementation which is spelled out on their web site: http://www.aopa.org/whatsnew/air_traffic/ads-b.html. It appears to me that several of the contingencies for AOPA's support are unlikely to be met.
That web site might be a resource for anyone wishing for more information on this issue.

Thanks for the link to the AOPA article. ADS-B is a great technology, this will come down to the question "how much, and who pays?" Also, from someone who flies a plane with no electrical system, I trust that some accommodation will be made.

I'm curious how you might think it will skew the results?
Please, read up on this topic -- AFTER taking the survey please. I can understand with an internet survey you have the ability to google something you don't understand, but I'm hoping people will take it with out help, to gauge knowledge of the topic.
I'd be happy to explain the direction and topics of the survey after it closes. Just a few more! Keep them comming!
