    Here's a good write up on a minimalist approach from Dave Hirshman:

    I'd like a Garmin minimalist approach, but would still consider this Stratus.

    I'm definitely interested in this rebate program. I have been weighing options for ADS-B in my Super Cub, so why not take advantage of the rebate. $500 is $500 after all!

    As usual with the Feds, you must jump thru a series of hoops.

    Rebate Steps:
    1. Decide: Owner schedules the installation of the Technical Standard Order (TSO)-certified avionics for an eligible aircraft.
    2. Reserve: The owner reserves a rebate from the FAA’s ADS-B Rebate website for each Eligible Aircraft before avionics installment occurs.
    3. Install:The TSO-certified ADS-B avionics are installed on the eligible aircraft.
    4. Fly & Validate: Not later than 60 days after the installation, the aircraft must be flown in “rule airspace” as defined in 14 CFR 91.225 for a minimum of 30 minutes with at least 10 aggregate minutes of maneuvering (AC 20-165B contains flight maneuver recommendations). After the flight, the aircraft owner must validate the performance of the Eligible Aircraft’s ADS-B installation by requesting a Public Compliance Report available on the FAA’s ADS-B Rebate website. A validated installation will provide the owner with an incentive code.
    5. Claim: Not later than 60 days after the installation date, the aircraft owner gathers their Rebate Reservation Code and Incentive Code and navigates to the ADS-B Rebate website to claim the rebate.

    The FAA is kicking in $500 each for the next 20,000 airplanes?
    Ten million taxpayer dollars and the people who already ponied up don't count?
    Only the FAA could dream this up.

    Carey,

    If enough people hold out long enough, perhaps the FAA will kick in 1k

    What about experimentals who can install themselves? Rebate no good for them unless installed by shop?

    Minimalist = $3K plus installation. Ouch.
    Hoping for more minimalistic (and cheaper) options as the 2020 deadline draws closer.
