If you have an old Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast weather receiver that still works and want to upgrade to a newer model—now’s the time. You could save $300.
SiriusXM Aviation is offering a trade-in deal from April 10 through 30.
SiriusXM launched the program, with this explanation: “Receive a $100 credit from SiriusXM when exchanging your current working ADS-B weather receiver towards a new Garmin GDL 51 or GDL 52 receiver. You will also be eligible for a $200 rebate from SiriusXM Aviation.”
See how the GDL 51 and 52 provided weather information on two of my cross-country flights (Florida to Maryland, and Maryland to Tennessee) in my VFR-only Cessna 170B.
