According to an August 2017 FAA legal interpretation, ADS-B equipped aircraft must emit the Flight ID that corresponds to what is provided on that aircraft’s flight plan. For example, if the aircraft is registered as N12345 but will be flying on a flight plan using a callsign, such as ARF123, the pilot must ensure their ADS-B system is emitting that callsign, i.e., ARF123, during that flight. When considering what ADS-B equipment to buy, it is important to consider whether you will need to change your Flight ID routinely and whether the ADS-B product will allow you to do so in an easy manner.
