According to the CASA website:

Civil Aviation Safety Authority - Key timelines

by the 6th of February 2016:

Existing IFR aircraft engaged in AWK or private operations 1 x TSO C145/146 or TSO C196 GNSS required; or 1 x TSO C129 plus 1 x ADF or VOR, if he has a G1000 then he should be fine with TSO C129 and the VOR until 2nd Feb 2017.

Unless the C182 he has was registered in Aus after the 6th Feb 2014:

IFR aircraft first registered on or after 6 February 2014 ADS-B required

So this may be his issue. From what I can see though Garmin Sell the GTX 33 for about $4,200USD Brand New which allows for ADS-B out, and unless installation is close to $25,000AUD I can't imagine how it will cost him the amount that they quoted.


I have although read about the G1000 possibly requiring a Software Update to talk to the GT33 and this could be the issue thusly requiring some additional equipment to be installed, but still seems pretty steep. Maybe someone else can fill in the gaps?
