Just touching on what Bloggs said, I can not recommend using flight following strongly enough. It is a fantastic service, you get access to significantly more information that will be directed to you and you get traffic information. Best of all itís free. I know the tin foil hat brigade donít like it because their flights can be tracked if they use it, but it is a fantastic service for enhancing your safety.

As for all the people that really hate ADSB, I know of at least 10 near misses between VFR I have managed to help prevent because the aircraft had ADSB. Itís easy to point out the one accident that was not prevented by it, but we donít really keep track of the occasions where it very well may have been what saved the day.
